Andrea Baccega

Backend Developer / Android developer

I started as a C developer when I was just 15. I then moved to PHP when I was 17 (2004). In November 2008 I co-founded the leading Android community in Italy Androidiani.com with my friend Sebastiano.

In the early 2009 I started experimenting with Java and Android development.

Since then I created more than 40 Android apps and one of the best Android Validation Libraries.

Meanwhile, androidiani.com has become the leading android community in Italy now counting 600k registered users.

The fast-growing community lead me understand and practice with Linux Servers setup and maintenance. Within the years I learned and mastered different server management technologies such as: Puppet, NFS, Nginx, Munin, Varnish, …

I also had the chances to play with Docker to facilitate and streamline my development needs.

Owner – Androidiani.com

Androidiani.com is the leading android community in Italy counting more than 600k registered users.

I also wrote several Wordpress & vBulletin plugins to better handle the website traffic or to deliver extra features to both the Staff and end-users.

Research & Development – FastBooking

Mar 2009 - Current

I started @ Fastbooking as a SEO but due to my (now almost lost) expertise in PHP programming i was quickly put in charge of developing Hotel websites.

In the following years I was put in charge of different projects such as developing a set of WordPress plugins to match FastBooking client needs or developing the official Android app for the company.

I am currently in charge of writing & maintaining set of REST APIs written in Node.js + Client-side JS library meant for web-developers to ease their integration of FastBooking services.

I also made some experiences as a teacher for some clients who needed to train their employees developing on mobile/android.

SEO Expert – Mec314

May 2008 - Mar 2009

Mec314 was a marketing company primarily focused in hotel websites creation. When I joined Mec314 there was noone in charge of doing SEO.

During my short stay in Mec314 I had the chances to write some code snippets to ease my task of doing SEO for a pretty large portfolio of clients.

After 3-4 months we were starting to see the results of the performed tasks even though the performed SEO did not have a good quality.


/ – Università Ca` Foscari di Venezia

I started Informatics @ Università Ca` Foscari di Venezia but never finished.

I felt I was not getting enough from it compared to what I was able to achieve by myself reading books/online.

Secondary School degree – ITIS Vito Volterra

2001 - 2006

I successfully finished the secondary school by achieving a 80/100 vote.

During these 5 years i followed a Parallel computing extra-course (2-years-long) using OpenMP. Within the course I learned how to do parallel programming and I adapted some algorithms such as the  Sieve of Eratosthenes to work in a cluster. In 2nd year (2006) we tackled a NP-Complete problem to generate a valid time-table for a school given teachers availability and preferences. I used this experience as my thesis. available here (IT only)
