About Daniele

Daniele supports his clients in choosing the best solutions, from software and hardware to roadmaps. He also leads the Italian Dominopoint community activities and related conferences (active since 2004).

Q & A

1. Why did you want to become an IBM Champion?

I created a blog on Dominopoint Italian forums, and used it to share my experiences and information freely and with an open source perspective. I was one of the first in my community to do so. Dominopoint today has over 2800 members. Sharing information and helping to grow the community is the mark of an IBM Champion.

2. What led you to this work? How long have you been doing it?

I always had a passion for computers, so as soon as I was old enough to work, I threw myself into the field. So it's been almost twenty years.

3. What accomplishment are you most proud of in your work with IBM technology? Tell me about one project, for example . . .

4. What are you focused on or learning right now? What’s one thing everyone should start learning now?

I'm currently focused on Bluemix. Bluemix and cloud in general is something that I feel everyone should start to get confidence with.

5. What’s one tip or piece of advice you’d share?

Share experience, think with an open source attitude, and what goes around comes around.

6. Favorite conference to speak at or attend? Best conference experience?

Dominopoint conferences are just too special for me. I helped to establish it with friends and it's a dream come true. IBM Connect is really wonderful, but there is a language barrier for me.

7. Something you like to do in your free time?

I dance. I'm a salsa dancer; I've even been a teacher in salsa night clubs.

8. If our readers have questions about your area of expertise and want to be in touch with you as an IBM Champion, where might they encounter you? For example, are you on social media or blogging, responding in forums, or speaking at conferences?

9. Is there anything you'd like readers to know about your business or your work that we haven't covered?

I also do other non-IBM tech stack, for example, nigix, node.js angular and couchdb. And generally I like to be updated on latest techs.

10. Do you have a favorite or go-to karaoke song?

Marc Anthony Vivir mi vida – but I don't karaoke :-)
