I'm Italian. I've been working with computers since I was eight. I began programming with the legendary Texas TI-99/4A and Commodore 64 home computers in the early 80s. I have a Bachelor degree in Computer Science, and an MBA. I've worked as developer, architect, and project manager. Now, I am an independent IT consultant, freelance author & speaker. I am always researching about new technologies. I am researching about parallel programming, multiprocessor and multicore since 1997. Packt Publishing has published my beginner's book "C# 2008 and 2005 Threaded Programming: Beginner's Guide" John Wiley & Sons, Inc. has published my advanced book "Professional Parallel Programming with C#: Master Parallel Extensions with .NET 4" In a few words: I love this game!
