Biography

Ciao! I am Alessandro Chiarelli, aka alexcarchiar but I also have a Chinese name, which is 瑞利. I am a Computer Engineering Bachelor student, currently seeking an internship before the end of my Bachelor and before I start my Master’s Degree in Data Science and Engineering.

I am Italian but I am also familiar with both French and Chinese culture since I lived in France during High School and China during college. People say I am a global citizen, and that’s something I definitely like. I love Computer Science and technology in general, I read a lot about these topics as well as economy. My curiosity is probably my greatest asset since it also gives me the will to learn and grow every day.

I am a cryptoenthusiast and investor, both in crypto and non-crypto assets. I recently joined the newly-founded students’ association “BitPolito” at my university which focuses on spreading knowledge about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.

My blog

Places I lived in

Hi all, when I first decided to wrote this article (or page, still not sure yet) [14/10/2020] I wanted to have a place where I could list the places where I lived during my life.

LeadTheFuture Mentee

Hi all, today I am finally writing an article after months of inactivity - and that is for a good reason! I have been selected for a mentorship project by LeadTheFuture, an Italian non-profit organisation that empowers top-performing students giving them guidance to achieve their goals.

Blloc Ratio - the future launcher for Enthusiasts?

Yesterday I finally received an invitation to download Blloc Ratio from the European company Blloc. I discovered it thanks to TechAltar’s video about the phone Blloc Zero. The company is very responsive and it has an active online community that is responsive and helpful when it comes to newbies and solving bugs.

Banking system project

Hi all, today I am writing because I wanted to share here my newest github repo. I am currently working on a banking system project to hone my skills in both Python and SQL.

Domain owner!

Websites promote you 24/7: No employee will do that - Paul Cookson Even though I am just a student without any company of my own (and thus no employees), I must say that I agree with Paul.

Projects

These are just a few things I’ve been working on

Bank management system

I am building a Bank Management System to improve my software engineering skills and how to have a better understanding of the bankig system.

BitPolito

I’ve taken part to a newly founded students’ team at my university. BitPolito’s goals are to spread knowledge about Bitcoin and blockchain and develop new technologies. I work as a Digital Marketer and as a Developer.

Investments

I spend part of my spare time studying the best techniques to earn money through investments and I already have a few, both in fiat and crypto. I recently started studying crypto and this is what I am most interested about right now, that’s why I am taking part into a students’ association for crypto currencies and blockchain.

RasPi 4 server

I bought a Raspberry Pi 4 and used it to create my server that I use to host local website in my own network. I mainly use that server for my research purposes and to test my website before I upload my pages onto my web-hosting platform.

This website

This website is also a project of mine, made with Hugo and Academic. To be honest, though, I must credit my colleague and dear friend lorcalhost for inspiration. Check him out too!

Travels

I love to travel and I have already been to more than 10 countries. I have lived in four different places, three countries and two continents so far. My goal is to be able to visit every country.

YouTube

I’ve taken part to a few projects on YouTube, with the main ones being my own channel and the first two educational videos on JAES company’s YouTube channel. To be fair, though, I have never been consistent in making YouTube content and I have always been more keen on the underlying technologies that make such a platform possible.
