Luca Mezzalira at ASAS2016

I’m an Italian passionate Solutions Architect with more than 10 years of experience on front end technologies, in particular on Javascript, HTML 5, Haxe, Flash, Flex, AIR, Lua and Swift. I've often been involved in cutting edge projects for mobile (iOS, Android, Blackberry), desktop, web, TVs, set top boxes and embedded devices. I think the best way to use any programming language is mastering their models, that’s why I spent a lot of time studying and researching on topics like OOP, Functional programming and Functional Reactive programming. With these skills I’m able to swap quite easily between different programming languages applying the best practices learnt and drive any team to the success. I’m a natural leader, delivery focus, a problem solver and a game changer, I use my passion on any aspect of the work from the flow definition to the automation process. I try to cover any detail to improve the company standards, empower the teams and deliver great products. I wrote for national and international technical magazines and editors, I'm also technical reviewer for Packt Publishing, Pragmatic Bookshelf and O'Reilly. In 2015 I started the London JavaScript Community (http://www.meetup.com/London-JavaScript-Community/) organising a monthly meetup event about the most "hot topics" in the JavaScript world.
