Personal summary

I'm Francesco De Falco, a master's degree in Computer Science and
currently a "Senior Software Engineer I" at HCL Software, a company
where I am responsible for DevOps activities and a project based on
different technologies (Big Data, Data Analytics and Machine Learning)
in a team named Solutions whose purpose is to find new ideas and
solutions around existing products. Over the years I have held various
roles in different sectors, with ever increasing responsibilities.
My latest passion and career goal is to be able to work in the
blockchain field, a topic addressed in a master's thesis, an Interchain Developer Academy certification and on which
I worked for the first time as a Freelance Auditor in November.
I am a person with a sensitive emotional intelligence, who loves his
job and who tries to do his best to be able to obtain and satisfy not
only the customer or project requirements, but his own aptitude for
personal growth.
