About the Author

Filippo di Pisa fell in love with IT in 1983, when his auntie Maria Rosa gave him one of the first home computers on the market—the Texas Instruments TI-99/4A—for Christmas. After passing through the Sinclair Spectrum and Commodore era at the age of 24, he started his first IT company assembling PCs. Then he rode the new economy bubble launching various dot-coms—always software driven. Partly for business reasons, but largely because of a passion for programming and software engineering, he learned many high-productivity technologies such as Java, Spring, Hibernate, Acegi Security, ActionScript, Flex, ColdFusion, Fusebox, JavaScript, and Perl. Filippo is now a London-based consultant working for a number of household names in the UK market. Since growing up in Bologna (Italy), he has lived in Milan, Madrid, and Barcelona. He married Soledad in Ibiza on June 27, 2009.
