About Me

My name is Giovanni De Costanzo and I'm a Master graduate student in Computer Science (Computer Security) at the University of Salerno.

I am passionate about technology from an early age, when my father bought the first PC in 1995. From him I also inherited a passion for cinema, and together we set up a small Home Theatre room. Over the years I became interested in programming, so after high school I decided to enroll for the course in computer science. Around the same time I also had way to cultivate my passion for football, organising and participating in amateur tournaments among friends. In 2013 I created a tech blog (mondotec.wordpress.com), where I wrote some articles and guides. To date, the blog has exceeded 70K views. Now, I moved to my personal blog on this site.

Since spring 2016, I started cycling as a hobby and I bought my first road bike.

I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science in 2014, and soon after I left for Milan, where I worked for a year in consulting at Deloitte, as a developer on the e-commerce project of MSC Cruises. In August 2015 I resigned to meet my desire to resume the studies and deepen my knowledge. So I got home, enrolling in the Master's Degree. In December 2017 I have earned a Master's Degree cum Laude in Computer Science (specializing in Computer Security). For my thesis work I realized a reputation-based system in P2P logic for blocking malware at the operating system level.

In January 2018 I've been hired as Research Engineer at Malwarebytes (Perugia, Italy).
