Giacomo Furlan's blogfolio

Hello, I'm a web developer!

I'm always searching for something new, for something creative.

I love playing with my piano and my cello, to create digital posters, to shoot photos, to abuse the web technologies.

Who I am

My bio

Giacomo Furlan during a shotI was born in Milan on the 7th of February, 1987. I started playing piano when I was 4 and at the age of 10 I entered the conservatory 'G. Verdi' of Milano. My passion for the web started at the age of 15, when I started programming for Neverwinter Nights: I wanted to show the people out there my scripts. I quickly realised how the web was interesting to develop, how many things I could do just with the notepad.

I learned HTML, CSS and PHP followed by JavaScript, and continued following the technological advances (object-oriented PHP, HTML5, CSS3, CSS and JavaScript frameworks etc). I'm still learning everyday, reading specialised magazines, blogs and discovering new techniques and ways to write the web.

I'm now a professional and I always put passion in every work I do.

My skills

HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, PHP, MySQL
including CSS frameworks (like Bootstrap), JavaScript frameworks (jQuery, Zepto, AngularJS...), precompilers (LESS, SCSS).

Knowledge in writing and using RESTful services, MVC architecture, HTTP standard knowledge

Good knowledge of Java (writing for Android), knowledge of C, C++ and a little bit of C# (with .net framework).

My hobbies

Music: I love to improvise on the piano and playing the cello (which I started learning recently).

Creating visual art: it's not important on which canvas to draw (being physical, digital or a <canvas> element), but to amuse myself and the others.

Photography: a short while ago I bought my first DSLR and started experimenting with all the possible techniques I ever heard of... I really like shooting with my camera! You can see some of my pics in my Flickr account linked in the menu.

Including, but not limited to... origami, electronic music production, writing, understanding how things work, searching for new interests...
