Pietro Battiston

“Ex-almost-mathematician, I moved to economics just in time to not sound too cool, today I'm a researcher. I started studying Python for fun, as an apparently harmless curiosity, but along the years it has become more and more difficult for me to keep it from intruding into my working life, and today I'm definitely addicted (and contagious).”
