Those of you, who are not familiar with the “Blog It Forward Challenge”, please read Moshe Naveh’s blog [http://scn.sap.com/community/about/blog/2012/08/20/blog-it-forward-community-challenge]
About myself / my places
My name is Alessandro and I was born 31 years ago in Rome;
I think my city is one of the most beautiful and famous cities in the world, full of history and tales.
Unfortunately..there are downsides: the traffic jam.. public transport…the tube…and so on…they aren’t always as we would like!
But walking in the streets of the town centre at night is a magic experience
Sometimes on the weekend I go to my house in Amatrice to find relaxation. It’s a small town not far from Rome over the mountains of “Monti della Laga” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monti_della_Laga)
Amatrice is really famous for the very tasty regional dishes Amatriciana and Gricia…wow..I noticed now that exists a wikipedia page in english about “amatriciana” ! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amatriciana 😘 the story is interesting
My first videogame and my first computer
My beginning with technology was when I was about 6 years old and my father came home with this:
It was similar to PONG…a little bit more evolved..with different types of sports : it was a really rough game but it was really fun!
Then when I was 9 years was the Commodore 64
How many times have I seen this screen from 9 to 12-13 years old?How many times I typed load “$”,8 or load “*”,8,1 ? I think thousands of times ➕ ➕ 😘
How I Became a developer
Development came relatively late in my life : my high school wasn’t a “technical” school…I studied both technical (maths,physics) and humanities (latin , philosophy) subjects… so I never study programming when I was young.
In 2002, exactly 10 years ago, while attending the University of Economics I enrolled in a programming course organized by the “RegioneLazio” (Lazio is the district of Rome, in this period “regione Lazio” is very famous in Italy for sad political scandals 😡 .. but that’s another story).
The course would cover C + + and Visual Basic 6!
In those months I learned the basics of the art of programming…I drew a lot of flow chart(for example..the functionality of an ATM..or an alarm clock, it was very funny!)
I was excited..I finally found my way to the future…I could think about became a “true” developer!
The course ended in 2003; at the end of that year I was contacted by a company because they were organizing a new team of ABAP developers:I did the abap course…and everything started from there. 😆 😆
BIF questions by Ivan
If you could be a super hero (or are in your spare time) who would you be?
I see myself as Paperinik!
Because when I was a child I read a lot of disney comics and Paperinik is the superhero alterego of Donald Duck ,which is a little bit lazy and unfortunate but funny!
What do you most enjoy on SCN?
Thanks to SCN I can solve problems, I can create a project on Code-Exchange , share it and work together with other developers, I can attend events like Sap Inside Track, and much more!
If you were 20 again, what would you study?
Probably I would study Mathematics at University!
