Cosimo moved to Norway to join Opera Software almost 5 years ago.

Working as Lead Developer in the small team, he’s been responsible of the architecture, development, scalability and performance of the site.

Now he’s in Opera Software’s SWAT (ehm… Web Operations) team, helping develop, scale and occasionally crash web services used by many every day.
