Riccardo Padovani

Changing the world bit by bit

About me

I’m Riccardo, software developer. I love new challenges and learning new things. I’m currently enrolled at Technische Universität München, studying Computer Science with a focus on Security Engineering and Language Theory.

I’m an open source enthusiast, and in my free time I collaborate with as many projects as I can. I think it is very important spreading free software in the world, both due ethical and privacy-related reasons.

When I’m not busy with university or free software or work, I’m usually drinking a beer with friends or traveling around the world.

In 160 chars: Traveler, dreamer, Springsteen’s fan, freedom’s fanatic. I enjoy what’s amazing in the world.

My job

I work as Solutions Architect at nextbit.

Previously I’ve worked as javascript developer at fleetster and as fullstack developer at Archon Dronistics.
