Computer Science

I’m a Linux and network enthusiast.

I started using Linux as my main OS in 2008 and I’m still doing it. Currently writing this page from a Manjaro installation.

Hosting services

I run a small hosting company:

Hosting@FrancescoRuvolo

I started in 2013, after some time of hosting my own websites and realizing that I could have been able to offer the same service to other people.

Servers are located in Italy and Germany.

Programming

I started it as an hobby when I was 14-15 years old. Learned basic syntax with some simple C programming and then quickly moved to web development because it was more rewarding.

Here are some websites I developed which are currently hosted on my servers:

And here are some active projects:

  • MyPingBot: a Telegram bot to check servers for connectivity. You can use it here: t.me/MyPingBot
  • ppshell: a Perl script to issue commands through ssh on several machines.

You can find more code on the GitHub profile.

Security

In May 2019 I enlisted for the PWK course at Offensive Security. I passed the exam and obtained the certification in August.

Currently looking for a career switch in security. It’s super fun.

As many others, I decided to collect some useful stuffs in a personal website:

Flaws

I hate graphics. I can’t use efficiently any popular image editing software, need Google and time for even small modifications.

And as you can probably tell from this website, I don’t have a good taste for colors either.

Is this why I like command line?
