project s-mars
With the collaboration of Mario Di Dio, PhD
This is an home automation project based on Arduino.
We bought an Etekcity Zap Remote Control and Outlet set and we attached the remote to an Arduino Yun. Some lines of code in Arduino, some relays on the board and that's it! We can control our remote with our Android application or with just talking with our Google Home device.

saracraba.com
The idea of learning HTML and CSS program languages took form with the creation of my personal website. I started from a blank page, but when I realized that a responsive code was needed I rebuit the website with Bootstrap and Adaptive Image to make it looking cool also on small screen devices.
The webpage is hosted on my Raspberry Pi.

Operating System: Raspbian

nfc reader
NFC is a short range wireless connectivity technology and I decide to build this Android application for learning how to use the Android framework APIs that support NFC features. In fact, this application can detect NFC tags and reads the information contained into NDEF and IsoDep tags.

garage radio
This Android application is a pocket Italian rock webradio controller. It streams "Garage Radio" station and includes also a live chat to be connected with the speakers and the followers! I buit the app in just two days under the request of a friend that wanted an easy access to her favorite webradio with her Android smartphone.

find your words
I was attending a English class and each Monday morning my teacher integrated the vocabulary chapter with a crossword puzzle, to play with the words, to learn them faster... and it worked! Basically I took inspiration from that game to write my first Android application available in the play store. Give it a try! Insert some words that you hardly remember and see how fast you will improve your vocabulary by finding them!
Are you learning a new language? Try this and make it fun!

naval battle
This was a class project developed during my bachelor degree course. It is a client/server application based on peer2peer paradigm. The server and the client are mono-process and use the multiplexing I/O (api _select) to manage simultaneously the input and the output.
Programming a game proves every time being the best way to learn new concepts.

notes of computer engineering
Studying from a book is not enough for overcoming a university exam and so personal notes as well as from those collegues that were not asleep during the lessons are essentials . This is a little database for software engineering courses at University of Pisa that helps new students to find and use notes that preceding students made during the long nights preparing the exams.
