Fabrizio Giudici started his career in 1994 after receiving the laurea degree in Electronics Engineering. He spent a short time in researching on the optimisation of instruction sets for microcontrollers, then he started a doctorate focused on the Java™ technology, which had been released by Sun Microsystems in 1995.

When in 1998 Fabrizio received the Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Genoa he had already started holding technical seminars and conferences; he was also writing technical papers for Mokabyte, the leading italian webzine about Java™. He has been a speaker at many international conferences, such as JavaOne and JavaPolis/Devoxx.

In the same year he joined two friends for starting up a consultancy company; he also began the collaboration with Sun Microsystems Italy. Ever since he has been consulting and teaching about Java™ technology and Object Oriented Analysis and Design.

He had operated since 2001 as a freelance Java™ Architect, supporting small, medium and large companies in designing and developing mainly J2EE™-based applications. In 2005 Fabrizio incepted his own one-man company, Tidalwave s.a.s.

Since the start of his career, Fabrizio designed and developed (and helped others in designing an developing) a large amount of software and services, both in C/C++ and Java™, ranging from stock order routing systems to Formula One realtime telemetry data delivery software, and has been the project leader in a number of those projects. One of his major activities has been the design and implementation of RTTS, a Jini™-based real-time system for collecting and distributing telemetry data in the environment of Formula One racing cars. The system has been used by some of the major F1 teams, including the World Champion in the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Since 2007 Fabrizio is a member of the NetBeans Dream Team.

Fabrizio was interviewed by Mokabyte about his ten years experience with Java™ (an english version is published in his blog). He also used to blog at java.net.

Fabrizio has been a member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), Computer & Communications Societies and founder of ADI (the italian association of Ph.D.), even though today he is no more part of it. You can find Fabrizio's detailed profile at LinkedIn.

When Fabrizio is not busy on his job, he likes to spend his time taking photos.
