New year, new resolutions, and a better way of getting things done. We’re talking about…
Marco Chiesi’s journey as a developer started in the 80s when he tinkered around with basic programming just for fun. Today, he’s a respected Codeable developer, co-founder of the successful Black Studio agency, and an active organizer of vibrant WordPress events.
We’re delighted to have Marco with us as he shares his journey, talks us through his evolving development process, and explains the significance of the WordPress community in his own progress.
Danish: Hi Marco, thank you for joining us today. Can you tell us how you started your career with WordPress? Any insights you’d like to share about your professional career?
Marco: I have been passionate about computers since I was a child. In the 80s I started with some basic programming (“basic” to be intended as both the level and the language 🙂 ).
Then, in the 90s, in high school, I learned C++ and I had fun building some freeware video games, including a Billiards simulation that had a lot of success. Thanks to this passion, I decided to study Software Engineering at University.
At the end of the 90s, the Internet was starting to spread in Italy, and I was very interested in this new technology so in 1998 I built my first static website and then started doing a few web projects for some friends. After a short period of one year working as a teacher in my former high school, I decided to continue with a web developer career, and in 2002 I joined my friend Francesco Canovi who had just founded the Black Studio web agency.
We landed in the WordPress world a few years later, in 2010, after having tried different platforms and solutions. Fast-forward to 2022 and I am still involved in the web development industry and still with Black Studio, even if nowadays I’m usually not so involved with coding.
