Thoughts of a Dev

Impressions and feelings about software and development.

About the author

I really like to help people to achieve their goals with the maximum result and the minimum effort. I believe in Open Source software and I always try to put me into the game of making software development and software products better. I like to design, develop and maintain large software systems. What makes me really happy is to see people using what I create. Matteo Merola


Developers and self esteem

Developers and self esteem Ever since the beginning of time, developers are known for the "F**k you my code is better than yours" principle that is always valid no matter contexts, technologies or skills. And in some cases they are right cause there's a lot of shitty code out there (and QA engineers would probably agree on this). We tend to start very early with this approach even though we should not. I have always wondered why we have such this…  Read more

I moved to Berlin Hey there! Recently I got a new job in Berlin where I have moved some days ago. First of all, I'd like to tell to the ones who have tried to contact me via WhatsApp or any other social linked to my Italian number (prefix +39) that I have changed my mobile number. It's not my fault, I'm a kind boy and I usually reply to everybody 😁. At the moment I have a German number (this German number exactly +49 174 8967494). Please add…  Read more

Atom for LaTeX editing After having done the experimental work required for my master thesis, I finally decided to start writing it (considering that my graduation is scheduled for next March I think it is time to do it 😁) and, of course, I decided to write it with LaTeX. Ah the simplicity and beauty of the old good LaTeX! But where do I have to start from? Firstly I'd need the environment, then a good editor (maybe with integrated controls for compiling and 💩), then…  Read more

We are kind and gentle It has been a long time since I wrote my last article, I was trying to find the reasons why I didn't write but I guess it has been just because I like to occupy my spare time with plenty of projects to manage and ideas to realize. I don't know why I keep doing it. Probably, I just use to get exited too often. I mean, I love software and I love coding but what I like the most…  Read more

Productive as Fuck Today I wanna write a little about my idea of productivity and of what I usually do in order to deliver more and better in less time. The advices I'm going to give are the results of some years of attempts trying to get better and better in delivering high quality products. First thing first: the environment Yeah. This could just sound useless to you but, believe me, your work environment is the first thing that helps you to achieve…  Read more
