Hi, I'm Andrea (or Andre if you want), a 17 y/o guy from Italy who loves tech and cute things,
I'm not really good at programming but I can manage to do some stuff when I have the perseverance.
I'm in love with tech since I was born, my first PC was a Windows 98/2000 prebuilt of which I don't remember the brand;
the next one was an Acer Aspire with Windows XP on which I've spent a lot of time, it got upgraded to Vista some years later
and the rest is all history (considering also the ThinkPad and HP I had in that period). Years later I have cultivated a love for operating systems,
especially Linux-based distros; I mainly test them in VMs but I also use my hosts to install them when I want. On September 2022 I've also discovered osu!,
a rythm game of which I started playing a lot.
What I'm doing
Software development: I'm doing web development since some months (except for JS tho) and currently learning C#
(Console, MAUI and sometimes WinForms) at both home and school. In the future I'm planning to learn Kotlin and Jetpack Compose
to develop Android apps with Material Design 3.
Learning Japanese: I have started learning Japanese in October 2023 with the intention to consume Japanese media
(and maybe travel to Japan?). I'm not fluent by any means but I now have a good comprehension of Kana, some basic Kanji and
also know some vocabulary and grammar rules, でも日本語は難しいです.
Content creation: I don't actually do it often, but I have a few YouTube channels, including one that now has around
90 subscribers (not much but hey that's better than nothing). I have used Premiere Pro for some years now but have started to learn
some other video editing software (mainly DaVinci Resolve and Kdenlive) to escape from Adobe's huge monopoly and decrease my
dependency on Windows.
