About me

Profile Picture

Hi, I'm Olivier De Bastiani. I'm a software developer based in Zurich, Switzerland.

Many years ago, I stumbled upon Visual Basic 6 and was gaining my first experience with programming. Basically, I copied all code samples from a book and wondered, why it won’t work. After some time I wrote my own code and got it to work. Later I did an apprenticeship, improved my programming abilities and learnt about SQL and databases.

After a quick stop at Visual Basic .net I started with C#. I mostly used asp.net and started with successful Windows Phone apps and later with Windows apps. Together with Bedrija Hamza I made M8! - Mind Map which won a Swiss App Award and Bronze at Best of Swiss Apps.

Right now, I focus on asp.net, Microsoft SQL Server databases and the mysteries of Docker.
