My name is Luca Palmieri and I am an engineer, author and public speaker - with a focus on backend development, Cloud and the Rust programming language.
I build technology products for a living. I am currently working at AWS as a Senior Engineer, driving AWS' efforts to
offer a smooth onboarding path to engineering teams that want to use Rust.
I spent the previous 4 years as a Principal Engineer at TrueLayer, driving their technology strategy.
Career aside, I play around with technology for fun in my own time - I got started with Rust a few years ago and I haven't really stopped since. I ended up writing a book on how to use it effectively for backend development, Zero To Production In Rust.
This blog is my learning journal: if I am playing around with some stuff, chances are I'll sooner or later publish a write-up about what I learned on this website.
It originally was reinforcement learning, then classical ML, now backend development and architecture - the topic changes, the methodology stays the same.
If you want to get in touch, you can email me.
You can also find me on Twitter (@algo_luca), GitHub (@LukeMathWalker) or book a slot of my open office hours.
See you around!
