Hi all. My name is Franco and I'm from Italy. I love coding, and not by chance I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. My biggest passion is web development. I love HTML, CSS, JavaScript and web performance. Every time I build something for the web I ask myself: Β«How can I made it better and faster?Β».

Hey Franco Nice to meet you, I am new here and was just noticing that you had a CS degree. I am in the process of getting my CS degree but I am just starting out so I am really new to things, unfortunately. If you don't mind me asking, do you think the degree has helped your success in the industry a lot or not so much?

Hi Ryan, nice to meet you! Getting the degree has helped me a lot, since I was able to learn very difficult things that are fundamental for the field of CS. If you have any other question doesn't hesitate to ask!

Some days ago I published an article that try to answer the question if it does make sense to take a degree in a Computer Science major. I wrote down my experience and points of view. Ryan, I warmly invite you to read it! francoscarpa.com/articles/degree/

Benvenuto, Franco!

Given you are a web developer, might I take the privilege of introducing you to WebAssembly? :)

Given your mantra, here's a blog post that might be worth a read: cliffle.com/blog/bare-metal-wasm/

Happy hacking!

Thanks, Ganesh! Well, I read something about WebAssembly some months ago and I found it really interesting. However, I’ve never deepen my knowledge about it. I’ll surely read the article you linked! You can absolutely introduce me to WebAssembly. 😊
