Hi, I'm Andrea Dal Ponte

...and I'm a full stack web developer specialized in Ruby on Rails and EmberJS

I’m a full stack web developer based in Vicenza (Italy) with a deep love for open source software development. Passionate about finding simple and elegant solutions to important problems with Ruby on Rails and EmberJS.

I believe in simplicity and I strive for tested clean code, through Test Drive Development, following the best practice and patterns like the Sandi Metz’ Rules For Developers.

In my spare time I love learning new technologies and collaborating with open source communities to build awesome software. Sometimes… when I don’t code, I like listening good music, going trekking, travelling around the world and playing my bass guitar.

_Specialties and methodologies

I’m in love with: Ruby on Rails, Sinatra, Git, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, HTML5, EmberJS, ReactJS, Redis, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Test Driven Development with libraries such as Cucumber and RSpec, Lean/Agile Software Development and Multitenant applications.
