Simone Chiaretta is an Italian software architect and developer who enjoys sharing his development experience and more than 10 years’ worth of knowledge of Web development with ASP.NET and other Web technologies.
He currently lives in Brussels, working as web architect and team lead for the Council of the European Union. Previously he worked for eight years as a Web developer for Esperia, a Web agency based in Milan, where he developed a CMS that still powers the AC Milan Web site. He’s also worked in New Zealand as chief software architect for Calcium Software Ltd and later as Senior Solution Developer for Avanade Italy, an international consulting company jointly owned by Accenture and Microsoft.
Simone is a Microsoft MVP in ASP.NET, an ASPInsider, and he has been involved in many open source projects, but now he focuses mainly on SubText to try to take it to the next level. Simone loves sharing his knowledge on his blog at http://codeclimber.net.nz and, if you can read Italian, also at http://blogs.ugidotnet.org/piyo.
When not working or playing with technology, Simone spends time with his wife Daniela ice-climbing, free-climbing, and alpine and mountain climbing.
