Get to know this software consultant a little better
I would love to tell you more about my past, culture.
Michele Fadda’s – Abridged bio Bit slicing all along
Digital entrepreneur and proud developer.
Michele Giuseppe Fadda, as a consultant, has been involved in numerous projects in Italy, using a variety of programming languages for over three decades.
He spent his first 19 years, doing classical studies, stealing his father's radio books, and learning everything he could about anything vaguely digital, and learning how to program in assembler 8080A assembly by himself, all age of 12.
As a student in Milan in 1983, he began to write for technical magazines and to work as a consultant for the leading Italian companies involved in the development of firmware, including Olivetti.
At the time dealing with computers was not at all "fashionable"; it was something you did for passion. The unruly crowd did not see computing as a fashionable subject. Indeed, strange as it may seem today, taking an interest in IT meant exposing oneself to certain social disapproval (such as being classified as Nerd, which had an entirely negative connotation).
Author of about fifty technical articles on digital electronics and programming in magazines.
Earned an MBA, Master of Business Management in 2002 with OUBS, The Open University Business School, following a Diploma in Business Studies.
He spent the last eight years developing mobile applications in iOS and dabbling with back end application architectures.
Has a keen interest in crypto technology, starting by developing a firmware DES implementation in 8051 Assembly from scratch, in 1988, without a debugger, passing all the tests NIST of the time.
In the UK from September 2018, fell in love with Newcastle, where he is now based.
Passions and interests
Be like a good cook
Use sharp tools and always be learning. If you define yourself as an expert, you probably just stopped learning. Yes, I do have strong opinions on cooking.
Software Technologies iOS Senior Developer
I got involved in mobile technology because I wanted to make a difference as a developer.
I chose to focus on Apple, because it matched my ideas on elegance and design, especially from a software engineering stand point.
I also use other elegant (and fast) technologies, did I mention Go programming language?
Business management How can a nerd be interested in that?
I got into that because wanted to learn more on how companies I consulted for worked.
I also wanted to know how to drive software development to success, while respecting people, and make a bigger difference.
Having witnessed so many different cultures and organisations, I consider myself a bit of a corporate cultural anthropologist.
Other interests in no particular order
