About the Author:

Stefano Iacovella

Stefano Iacovella is a long-time GIS developer and consultant living in Rome, Italy. He also works as a GIS course instructor.

He has a Ph.D in Geology. Being a very curious person, he has developed a deep knowledge of IT technologies, mainly focused on GIS Software and related standards.

Starting his career as an ESRI employee, he was exposed to and became confident with proprietary GIS Software, mainly the ESRI suite of products.

For the last 10 years, he has been involved with open source software and also the task of integrating it with commercial software. He loves the open source approach, and really trusts in the collaboration and sharing of knowledge. He strongly believes in the concept of open source, and constantly strives to spread it, and not only in the GIS sector.

He has been using GeoServer since the release of Version 1.5; configuring, deploying, and hacking it in several projects. Some of the other GFOSS projects he mainly uses and likes are GDAL/OGR libraries, PostGIS, QGIS, and OpenLayers.

When not playing with maps and geometric shapes, he loves reading about science, mainly physics and math, riding his bike, and having fun with his wife and his two daughters, Alice and Luisa.
