  • driven by great passion for technology: the ones who love their job perform better with less effort
  • open source and stackoverflow contributor: it's nice to take but it's also necessary to give something back to the community
  • knowledge cruncher, the world runs fast and you have to stay up to date, read a lot and learn from those who have already faced a problem before you is definitely the right path to take
  • passionate about the UNIX-like world, what's better than knowing what's happening in your pc?
  • beer lover, it helps to think better :)
