Alessandro has been living in London for 10 years which has been an incredibly positive experience. After learning English, he enrolled at the University of Greenwich from which he graduated in 2011 in a BSc Digital Media Technologies. He currently has 3 years of commercial experience under his belt and has worked for a number of agencies like Saatchi & Saatchi and TAG. He is currently based at Hostelbookers.com working on many exciting projects, focusing on clean UI, web performance and JS.

Clear written HTML code, taking advantage of HTML5 new elements (structural, form inputs and media) and improve accessibility and SEO.

Clear use of selctors to avoid location dependency and decrease specificity. LESS used on a number of projects together with Modernizr to offer valid fall-back options.

Very comfortable with jQuery framework. Currently focusing on raw JavaScript and OOP. Very interested in Backbone and MVC in general.
