2022: A Year of Growth and Accomplishments

It’s been a busy and rewarding year, both personally and professionally.

I turned 40 in June! That was an opportunity to think about time passing. I’m committed to spending time doing the things I always wanted to do but never took the courage to do.

For example, I started taking swimming lessons. 🏊 For a person that was terrified by deep water, it’s a vast improvement. 💪

Another exciting news was to start playing live electronic music. 🎧 It happened a few times, and that was fun! A lot of fun! 😎

Still, on the music side, I published 32 new songs varying from 1 to 6 mins.

My football team (Salernitana) made a historical sports miracle by escaping relegation on the last match of Serie A (italian football league).

We started 2022 with COVID-19 restrictions, and now we can return to “normal life.” I got sick myself in October.

More importantly, I spent a year with my loved ones. I never take it for granted. That’s why I’m so grateful for it.

In my professional life, I’ve had the opportunity to take on exciting new projects and responsibilities. I’ve expanded my skills and knowledge as a software architect at Toptal and have had the chance to work with some talented and supportive colleagues.

The most significant achievement this year has been the launch of Hanami 2.0. An Open Source Ruby framework that wouldn’t have been possible without the talented team behind it.

Overall, it’s been a great year full of personal and professional growth. I’m excited to see what new challenges and opportunities come my way the next year.

I am looking forward to a great 2023!
