ALBERTO PASCA

SOFTWARE DEVELOPER


I'm Alberto, a software developer with a strong passion for mobile platforms (Symbian/iOS/Android/Windows).

In my career, I used various technologies and programming languages for full-stack completeness; I've worked as pc-technician, as UNIX sys-admin for networks (Solaris/Cisco IOS/Linux), as Frontend and Backend developer (full-stack), and of course as a Mobile developer.
I like to make tools for macOS, IOT stuffs, lots of mobile app and funny games, also with Unity3d.

Reach the highest possible code-coverage and unit tests for a better CI and CD is my favorite hobby.
