My name is Simone Carletti. I'm an Italian software developer, also known as weppos. I'm also a PADI scuba instructor and a professional sommelier.
I'm very passionate about data management, programming languages, code quality and best practices. I'm Ruby-addicted.
I have been involved with FOSS (free/open source software) for more than a decade, contributing code and creating libraries.
I don't understand the cultural fascination with failure being the source of great lessons to be learned. What did you learn? You learned what didn't work. Now you won't make the same mistake twice, but you're just as likely to make a different mistake next time. You might know what won't work, but you still don't know what will work. That's not much of a lesson.
