I decided to create this blog in 2019 with the aim of helping other IT enthusiasts. The blog will cover different aspects of my experience and interesting topics related to big data, functional programming, Spark, Kafka and Scala.
After more than 10 years working in IT, I found my passion in Scala and functional programming. After having worked so many years in Java, working in Scala has given me a new apetite for learning.
