And if you are instead so 2000 & late here is my CV in PDF format (and if you are really really lazy here is a single page CV, with main (mostly Alfresco related) experiences. If you are instead looking for my public speaking and publication expertise check my profile on Lanyrd, while my academic publications can be found in Google Scholar.
Open Source is more than a mere licensing issue, much more than downloading a software package for free, surely much more than just Linux
Open Source is what keeps my conscience clean, despite working on huge enterprise multinational style integration projects, because it’s the basis for a concrete, fair and successful business model based on knowledge exchange rather than on obscure marketing strategies.
I believe open source, open standards and open development process can bring to enterprise and academic organizations that connection that our daily business life proves us not to exist: too many times methodologies and patterns are left in the closed or misused in enterprise environment, and that’s mostly a cultural issue which we wish to solve with a clear communication in a true open spirit.
If you also believe Open Source can improve and rationalize your business, make your developers confident and proactive in their daily activities and leverage on the two way continuous contribution with the nowadays enormous, growing and lively open source community, then you’re in the right place.
If you want support and advices in setting up a fully fledged open source process, or advices on how to build a strong ECM platform on top of Alfresco,
