I have a pile of books next to my bed. Make it next to my beds since I scatted my belongings between four apartments. But this summer is all about the Sudoku Samurai. The five intersecting sudokus are my jam and I am not sure I will finish any of the books I have on… Continue reading Sudoku Samurai Summer
I talk a lot. Like a lot. So much that once I went on a field trip with some friends to explore some wool factories, and at some point, I was talking so much that I hear one of the ladies in the front saying “Will she ever shut up”? So yeah, I talk a… Continue reading 30 days of clicking publish. A challenge for a lazy writer.
I loved the first season of the Newsroom. It has one of my favorite opening scenes of a tv serie. Very relevant today.
I have been an avid reader my whole life. Books entertain, comfort, motivate, and educate me. When I got a new job in October 2020, I felt I needed to get more organised in my learning, hence in my reading. I enjoy team work, so naturally I thought creating a book club would be the… Continue reading Read to Lead: a book club for women and non-binary folx

In… Continue reading Reading material for that time I became a team lead and an accidental leader

Designed, developed and wrangled by a team of caring, knowledgable leads who worked tirelessly with a great bunch of people. I can not wait to use you for this website. You… Continue reading Welcome Twenty Twenty-One
A disclaimer first: this is not to be considered a retrospective on my official role. This is all about feelings and emotions. If you are looking for one, it will be posted in the Core blog at some point 🙂 In the past eight weeks I have been coordinating the release of WordPress 5.3, the… Continue reading A personal reflection on 8 weeks of coordinating the release of WordPress 5.3
I am about to fall asleep for the third time since this morning, after coming back from Miami, where I spoke at the tenth WordCamp Miami (congratulations folks, you rock!). It seems only fitting to write today the second post about traveling for business.
I have decided to try and write in English. I know, I know, I am Italian, my readers (hi!) are Italians and yet, English is the language that I use the most, professionally and personally. I made very few New Year’s resolutions, one of them is writing more. Will you stick with me? I promise… Continue reading Traveling for business: suitcase and apps edition
