My name is Marco Marinello, I am 18 years old and I come from Bolzano, Italy.
Since I was a child I have always found computers and their operation intriguing. Growing up, I realized that I was not interested in how they were made inside, but rather in their software.
It was my father who introduced me in the world of computer science, teaching me the basics of Linux system administration that he had studied. As a matter of fact, in his school and in all South Tyrol region a modified version of Debian ("FUSS") had been installed. Helping him with the maintenance of the LAN has encouraged me to develop an interest in programming. Since then I have studied by myself Python and HTML, which are languages that I still use today.
Between 2014 and 2015 I started working on the FUSS project as a contributor. This experience was the one that influenced me the most, allowing me to explore the mentality of free software and to become a convinced supporter. During my time at FUSS, which I am still working at, I had the privilege to meet and work with people from both the didactic and academic fields, who have provided for my training.
