About Me

Who Am I?

Hi I'm Gianluca Colaianni and I'm a passionate Software Engineer. I'm Fouder & Chief Technology Officier at Popark. I have several years of experience in analysis, design and implementation of complex Java and Java EE applications with a particular focus in Financial and Media domains. I'm a continuous learner. I love to improve my technical skills and to try new technologies.

I'm an MBA graduate alumnus at CDI. The MBA is fully financed (100%) by sponsoring partner company and the selection process is based on merit (5% admission rate). Main courses are corporate finance, investments & company evaluation, accounting & controlling, innovation, lean management, marketing & strategy, human resources & communication, leadership, negotiation, public speaking, project management, decision-making and action, coaching.
Professors from prestigious universities (Harvard BS, INSEAD, Chicago Booth, ETH Zürich, HEC).

In my free time I like to play several sports and to read books. Until I was an agonist athlete in track and field. My specialities were 400 metres and 400 metres hurldes, but I also managed with 200 metres. Between and I was an official football referee for Associazione Italiana Arbitri (AIA). I love also play football and ski.

I'm a fan of Harry Potter series. I love both books and films but (of course) books have something special that films haven't! I like also TV Series and there are several already full viewed in my library.
