Dag7's Homepage

Welcome to the homepage of
Dag7Damiano Gualandri or simply dag
, a backend programmer and devops doing a lot of stuff in his life.

He doesn't like to keep himself bored. When not collecting old videogames, his interests include but are not limited to: electronic music, casual photo shooting, writing, watching movies, playing board games and videogames, reading books, meeting people (usually friends).

He's not a frontend developer: that's why this page is styled in its best of its possibilities.

Notes for HR: if you are reading this, this webpage aims to be an extended version of his CV.

What about your old website?
It was dismissed since I was bored. Sorry about that!

Where are your articles?
Gone. But they will return somewhere, they are not lost. Legends sleep but never die.

Will you write more articles? What about publishing here on your website?
I am not sure, I wrote a lot in these years. The thing is that you need patience and enjoy what you're doing. I was enjoying the art of writing, but unfortunately I wasn't constant in publishing. Therefore, I won't publish any other new article.
I am considering the idea of integrate a little "oneline blog" where to publish my old articles and integrate it with Telegram.

By the way, if you're interested in my writings, I am publishing articles around the web.

This webpage sucks! You should care more about yourself.
Building a visual-appealing website takes a lot of time and effort: I wasted a lot of time while doing several times my blog, over and over, tweaking styles, themes, and so on.
Honestly, I think this approach is the best.
If you're familiar, I took inspiration from this NES Pirate Multicart
Arr! 🏴‍☠️
