Alessandro Nadalin (who likes to go by "Alex"), is a seasoned technical leader who pays a lot of attention to enterprise patterns, methodologies, communities and (everyone’s) personal development: with 10 years of experience on his back, he heavily focused his attention towards agile practices, patterns of enterprise application architecture, leading mid-sized development teams and managing complexity in distributed systems.
A forward-thinker by nature, he still loves to get his hands dirty with code, or testing new platforms: he's am quite active on github and, from time to time, blogs in his own little place on the internet.
Currently in Dubai, where he works as CTO @ Namshi, a Rocket Internet venture, he leads the engineering team in developing a distributed, stateless microservice-based architecture. He spends most of his time trying to innovate the stack with tools like Docker or React Native, taming the implicit complexity of a large scale distributed system and helping his teammates adopt new tools, practices and patterns they have never used before, like 12-factor apps, containers or ChatOps.
He's been involved in projects for governments, mainstream companies such as Samsung or Nissan and pioneered the technology scene of e-commerce platforms in the Middle East: when not working, you can find him speaking at some conference, blogging or grabbing a bite in the old side of Dubai.
