I graduate in physics in 1996 and then dedicate some years to biophysics slowly shifting toward computer science and programming. Or I discover Debian (again in 1996) and become a DD in 1997. Or I leave Perl for Python (again in 1996!) and some years later I release the most used Python-PostgreSQL driver. Or I do some programming part-time work (guess what? starting from 1996) and after some years I am one of the founders the first Italian company to have the term "free software" in its charter. Lately you can meet me teaching programming, selling cocktails to gather founds for some free software project or trying to convince its friends that C# is an extremely Pythonic language and Mono "rulezza!"
