Delivery isn’t magic anymore: distribuisci le tue applicazioni (it)

Python Good Practices (en)

Florence, July 2013 @ Europython.

Python is quite a powerful language; sometimes, it’s a too much powerful language. Do you know how to tame it without getting caught in its perils and gotchas? Quite a lot of scaffolding and DOs/DONTs can be seen in this talk.

Language alone won’t pay your bills (en)

Florence, July 2012 @ Europython

Each platform is got its own tradeoffs. Python is a great language, what about the whole platform? How do Python tools, IDEs, deployment work together?

Capire e gestire il debito tecnico (it)

Rome, November 2011 @ Italian Agile Day

Do your once-looking-good projects crumble after some amount of time? Do you spend more and more resources on just maintaining something working rather than improving it? Technical debt may be the root cause of all your issues, even though you may not know it - but you can handle it.

Dependency Injection is your friend (it)

Florence, June 2011 @ Europython

There I introduce Dependency Injection and Inversion of Control themes to python developers. It’s highly recommended if you think DI just means bloat!

Twisted for Dummies (it)

Florence, May 2010 @ Pycon Quattro

It’s a rather large introduction to the many concepts underlying the Twisted network programming framework. I think it was too an ambitious talk and I don’t recommend watching it if you want to get introduced to Twisted - check out that instead.

Perspective Broker: Real Programming Comfort

Florence, May 2009 @ Pycon Tre

It’s an introduction to the great RPC/Object broker offered by the Twisted framework.

Introduzione alla programmazione asincrona

Trieste, October 2008 @ Linux Day

Some example of async programming using Python and Twisted. No link available at this time.
