Prendi la necessità di dover acquistare un comune elettrodomestico, tipo una macchina per il caffè. Due negozi di zona, non negozietti, negozi di note catene: prezzi dai…
This post was inspired by one of my students. As it happens, it started with a few questions in a chat, which were essentially like: since you’re a senior in this field (ie, I’m getting old, personal note…), I’d like to ask you some advice on what job is best, should I do a PhD, what are the other options (education, training, etc) to work as a bioinformatician, what about salaries, success chances, challenges, etc, etc.
After having had to delay a well-thought and comprehensive answer, I decided that maybe it was worth organising my notes on the not-so-easy topic and writing a public post, so that it could benefit everyone.
Recently, in my team, we have managed to start periodic talks/discussions on software engineering, including best practices, project management tools, code style, testing and all that jazz. If you are in a large-enough team in a full software house, probably you’re thinking: well, this kind of meetings should be pretty standard in this business. Well, […]
E così, di ritorno dalle ferie, con l’urgenza di sbollire il sequestro del melone dell’orto ai controlli aeroportuali, pure io sono caduto nella tentazione di scrivere del rito post-mezzadro agostano, le pummadò!
Lo riporto qui, forr dhe recordd, dopo averlo proposto ai debossciati del gruppo Facebook “Degrado Postmezzadrile”.
The Continuous Integration idea is great: people send their software code changes to a shared repository like github, and the CI reacts by building the executable product on the fly, and even using it to redeploy test servers and make latest cool features available for testing and showcasing.
In this short presentation, I show how I manage my continuous integration jobs from one script for all my projects and without (too many) dependencies on any specific CI software.
A window manager is a computer application that eases the use of multiple shell sessions at the same time.
In this post, I’ll show how you can create Maven projects that spawn command line tools. I’ll be using the great picocli library, and I’ll show how a new CLI project can be quickly generated, starting from my Maven CLI archetype.

I’m writing this short post mostly as a quick note on a couple of things I’m working on, after a couple of times I was asked for this kind of background.
We’re living in a world of data more than ever, and that makes it even more important to publish data following good principles of data sharing, which ease the job of finding data, …

Non sopporto i crociati nerd. Quelli che, IL MIO è L’UNICO VERO linguaggio di programmazione. Quelli che, tutto il resto fa schifo, in particolare fa schifo il tuo, anche se tu ne usi 7-8 regolarmente e ne conosci una ventina…

Dunque, sulla nave della Speranza c'erano i parlamentari del PD. Ma non per chiedere scusa…
Per quanto faccia sempre piacere vedere i fascisti contrastati in qualunque modo e per qualunque ragione, non mi rallegro affatto che Lorsignori Facebook si sveglino oggi, dopo la strage in Nuova Zelanda e avendo abbondantemente superato la soglia dell’indecenza, e si decidano a buttar fuori dal loro social network la feccia di Casa Pound e camerati vari.
