Hi, I'm
Francesco Pira

Software craftsman, driven by curiosity. Interested in tech and business.

Currently Senior Software Engineer and DevSecOps fellow at Leonardo, Cyber & Security division, Hybrid Cloud Applications dept.

I like to design and implement back-end business logic. CLI addicted, I spend days (and nights) in a tmux-ed zsh session. Know more about me.

Opinions are mine, here and on social networks I post on.

I stand against inequality and racism. I can't be silent. Please read this.
Supporting Ukraine. Donate and act.
