About Me

Hey there! I’m Simone.

I am Italian, but I am currently living in Amsterdam, NL.

I have always been curious about how things work and interact with each other.

In 2010, I’ve launched the now defunct freeBNC.net. At its prime it was one of the largest free IRC bouncer services. That was great fun! :) I found CVE-2013-2130 in the meantime.

Since 2015 I’ve been working with all sort of infrastructure: virtualization, cloud, data analytics pipelines, CI/CD, and declarative infrastructure to name a few.

I open-source whatever I can, mostly on my GitHub but I have some things on my GitLab account as well

Kubernetes is the orchestration platform I use on a daily basis. While its extensibility is remarkable, I think we’re not done yet. Maybe Serverless will take over!

What I do

Talk to me

  • Mail me at w@simone.sh
  • I’m on IRC, chauffer on freenode
  • I sporadically use XMPP, simone@neko.im
  • I use Signal, ask me for my phone number

Buzzwords

Some of the things that interest me, are:

  • Docker, Kubernetes, Rancher, CI/CD
  • Python 3, Postgres, MySQL, Redis
  • AWS, Google Cloud Platform
  • GitLab, Sentry, Datadog
  • nginx, haproxy, Terraform, Ansible, CloudFormation
  • KVM, ESXi, HyperV
  • Logical fallacies, Cognitive biases, Social Psychology
