I am a passionate Italian iOS Developer based in London.
Although I've always had a passion for electronics and technology since I was a little girl, my education was primarily oriented on foreign languages.
The truth is that if you have a real passion you cannot ignore it!
As my dream was to become a programmer, I started learning something by myself and finally on January 2013, I was eligible for entering a Java and Mobile programming course. That was my turning point, I finally entered my dream world! I started by studying the OOP basics, Java and Android SDK and then, during my intern, I studied C#, Objective-C and iOS SDK.
Studying all these technologies I realised that my dream job is to develop for mobile devices and in particular I fell in love with iOS development.
My final goal is to master my professional skills in an agile environment, producing extreme quality software.
I studied Object oriented programming, mobile development, database, communication and customer care.April 2013
I moved to London had the chance to learn how to work following Agile methodologies, in particular Scrum, and how to write unit tests and UI automation(KIF) for my code. Here I developed two native iOS apps to be used by contact centres for making, receiving, registering calls, managing customers' details, instant messaging and receive statistics about team's performances. The core of the former is the VoIP library that opens a SIP channel for the user in order to make and receive calls. Here I also had the pleasure to learn Swift and was asked to integrate it into the apps.April 2014 - June 2015
I developed a native iPhone app for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to buy tickets and get information about performances and events and an app to gather data and statistics from an in-house built scanner.June 2015 - September 2015
Here I worked on the currently live SmartShop app, to add products to your cart and pay directly on your mobile phone. Developed a few apps for internal use and developed the TU Clothing e-commerce mobile app. Using Swift on a daily basis and XCTest Framework for UI automation.October 2015 - November 2016
Here I was maintaining and expanding the Moonpig iOS app with new features written using Swift, applying agile metodologies and extreme programming best practices such as TDD, pair programming and code reviews.November 2016 - August 2018
Enriching people's mind by mantaining and expanding Memrise's language learning app. Using Swift on a daily basis, writing unit tests and pair programming with talented people.September 2018 - Current
