Paolo Barbolini

Hi, I'm Paolo, a 18-year-old Italian guy. I started programming in 2013 and I love it. Hobbyist photographer and hobbyist videomaker. I write this blog and sometimes I remember to put my projects on GitHub.

  1. It wasn't for real, so nobody saw it!

    “Ma come fai?”, that’s the direction the conversation took while talking to my English teacher about a website I built towards the end of last year. I asked her to clarify, since I had just finished talking about how yesterday I released an update which made it load exponentially faster, but her not being a technical person, I was wandering what she was really asking. First a bit of context. 2 years ago I built a Telegram bot which made it much faster and simpler to lookup school hours and receive notifications when notices got posted, since our school’s website is painful to use and it’s not the type of thing you want to check anyway.
  2. Creating my blog

    I had been thinking about starting a blog for months now, but was basically paralyzed by perfectionism. My desire to get it just right from the get-go had kept me from just doing it. A few months ago I started programming in golang, and immediately fell in love with it, so after seeing that a static site generator was written in golang, I decided to try it by building my blog.
