About me

Hi I’m Gianluca Braga or Matrix86 if you prefer.

I am an Italian guy and I live in Rome for work, but I have my roots in a small town on the coast, near Rome.

I studied at the Sapienza University of Rome and I graduated in 2013 with a Master Degree in Computer Engineering.

Since I was a kid, I have always been attracted to the electronic gadget, and I have always been curious to undestand how they work. When I was 5 I received my first 80386 and I loved it. That’s when I started with software development using basic, studying the sample game sourcecode. A few years later I started studying C and ASM 8086.

My love for computer science has always been accompanied by that for electronics. I inherited this from my father and I studied electronics and telecommunication in high school.

I mainly develop in C/C++, but I also know other languages such as PHP, Java, JS, C#, Asm. My favourite field is computer security and machine learning.

Another passion that I have is softair, and I have been playing it for 4 years. I love this kind of war simulation, because I think it stimulates my brain in order to solve problems in a short amount of time and with fewer losses.
