Bio

My name is Edoardo Viola and I was born at Cagliari on 9 October of 1984. On 2017 I though a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science at the University of Cagliari with the mark 106/110. From two years I started to be Volunteer for the Mozilla Foundation. Actually I'm a Mozilla Reps and Member of the Council of the Reps, Campus Advisory Committee Member and Regional Coordinator for the Mozilla Campus Club Program, Reps Regional Coach, part of the international committee for the Internet Health Report, and mentor for the Mozilla Open Leader Program.

My favourite dish is Pizza and I love to sing and play guitar (if you want to know more about this, you can visit the Singer section on my website). In the past I done some modern singing courses, masters around my nation and I partecipated at some national and international Festivals. Today I prefeer to sing and play the guitar with local band or with my friends. I love to cook, taste and exeperiments new dishes and I like travel too. I start to use ICT technologies from I was 7 years old, and, from that moment, my life was changed. During my Studies I getting in touch with various Programming Languages, elettronic and telecomunication technologies. As you can see, I speak a little English, Spanish, and, a bit of Chinese. I love to know people over the entire world and for that reason I remain fascinated from other languages.

Activism

From 2015, I started to be a volunteer for Mozilla. I started in the Firefox Student Ambassador(FSA). After 1 year of experience there, I've been selected as Regional Ambassador Lead (RAL) for my country. My personal little record is that I was be the first RAL selected in all the Europe. In only five months we have planned some events and increased the number of active volunteers in the program and in the Italian Mozilla Community (Mozilla Italia), all that for me was amazing. During this experience, I created the Mozilla Cagliari Club. An inclusive club focused to help the people in Web Literacy, a Club where all people can partecipate to help or learn how use, make and partecipate on the web.

Actually, I'm involved in the Mozilla Reps Program as Reps Council Member, the Mozilla Campus Club Program as Campus Advisory Committee Member and Regional Coordinator, and in the Reps Community Coach Program. This role have the goals to helps the various National Communities members in the World to identify the best way to increase the partecipation in all their community activities. Actually, I'm involved also in the Mozilla Open Leader Program as Mentor too. This program is oriented to help the people to get all the instruments helpful to be a good open source project leader. I'm excited to be involved as mentor and I'm happy to help other in the world to create community who works in opensource. In the last months I take part of one committee about the Internet Health on the world. This Committee was related at the Mozilla Internet Health Report and have the goal to understand the global situation of the health of the web. I hope to update soon this section with some other awesome news, but, the more important thing is that I'm proud to be a part of the fantastic Mozilla community.

Work

During my Universities studies, I worked as informatic technician and ocasionally I worked as Stewart for a soccer Club (Cagliari Calcio), unskilled worker to mount and dismount big Stage in a big concert or events, sound engineer in Music Events and in Recording Studios. Next, I worked for two years in the CRM field for Sky Italia S.r.l., a big telecomunication and broadcasting corporate, where I worked in the Customer Satisfaction and Commercial Retention fields. Next these two fantastic years, I decided to renew my life and after some job interviews, I start to work for the bcs biotech S.r.l. a Sardinian Biotech Corporate. Here I've been involved as Mainteneance Manager and Technical Assistance Manager for three long years, and as Coordinator Scientific Manager and Technical Researcher in R&D Projects for Software and Device development for the healthcare.

Unfortunately, next three years of hard work, the corporate was out of business and I owed to reinvent my life. Seen my actitudes and my interests, I restarted to study at University in a different Faculty to take a degree in Computer Science. In 2017, and after two intensive years, I taked a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. From July 2016 I started to help a little Biotech Corporate located here in Cagliari, as Mainteneance Manager and Technical Assistance Manager, and from June 2017 till June 2018 I was a Tutor and Orientator for a Course on "Web Mobile Application and Internet of Things" made by the University of Cagliari. Now I'm a Freelance Developer and a Student for a Master in Computer Science. Regardings my interest in coding and what I study at the university I can make a short list with: Java, C++, C#, C, a bit of OCAML, HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, JS, and in future, I want to start to learn the RUST Language.
