Mirko Ortensi wrote his first lines of code on a Commodore 64 in Basic when he was 10 years old. It was love at first sight. Eventually he earned a degree in electronic engineering and a Masters degree in software engineering at Università Politecnica delle Marche in Italy in 2002, with a thesis about pattern recognition at UPC in Barcelona, Spain.
Mirko’s career has spanned several roles in software and services businesses, encompassing development and testing, system management, and support, particularly centered around databases and distributed systems.
As a senior technical enablement architect at Redis, Mirko is in charge of sharing technical knowledge about Redis’s products, services, and features. He maintains a personal blog that might interest you.
