    Hi everyone!
    I’m so sorry but in the last post I forgot to present me!

    I’m Simone Dalledonne, I am a SVST 2019 Alumnus and I’m one of the moderators of this forum with @cbrugo during these first weeks. Then, other Alumni will join the conversation!

    Congratulations to all of you because you are doing an excellent job! The topics are very interesting!
    Especially, @dariaarena ‘s topic is really important because we all have values that are often shared. In fact, I think the greatest value I have is to be Italian! Italians are loved by everyone abroad for our culture, our preparation and our ability to innovate!

    SVST was an experience that taught me the importance of this thing, because only by meeting Italians who have made a career in Silicon Valley, you can understand that there is something special in all of us!
    Last year, we were lucky enough to meet Loris Degioanni, one of the “Italian God” of Silicon Valley and perhaps one of the most important.

    This video is from 2011, when Loris was the director of Riverbed, just after the sale of Cace Technologies to Riverbed. The following years he founded Sysdig, it is still alive and based in Silicon Valley. It was very inspiring for me!

    Have you ever heard about him? What values do you think distinguish Italian people? Have you got some example to explain that? Share some videos or some articles if you have them!

    Hi Silvia! Thanks for your presentation but you were wrong to write it in a new forum. Can you rewrite it on the “Go to Silicon Valley Virtually 2020” forum, please?
    Once you do it, this forum with your presentation will be deleted to avoid misunderstandings.
    Thanks for your collaboration Silvia 🙂

    Hi guys!
    Andrea Baldini webinar was the kickoff of “Go To Silicon Valley Virtually 2020” and if you weren’t able to attend it, soon it will be available on YouTube and I’ll share with you the link.
    I think that this conference is the best way to start this new journey, because Andrea’s story is based on a great training that has always been accompanied by many experiences and this is one of the SVST key factor.

    From this webinar, I learned that it is never too late to get back in the game and radically change your life, as Andrea did after Cisco, when he decided to take a MBA and change his work and his life. What do you think about it? Would you prefer to stay in the same job and try to grow vertically even if the motivations have weakened, or try to start from the beginning in a new job area?

    Another very interesting topic is the “spin-in” startup, especially the history Crescendo, Andiamo, Nuova, Insieme e Pensando, the five Cisco’s startups (https://www.sdxcentral.com/articles/news/ciscos-former-spin-crew-resurfaces/2017/02/ ). It was very fascinating to hear Andrea speaking about this economic “phenomenon” as normal in the USA. Do you think that spin-in startup can take hold in Italy or will they have to find other ways to grow? Why?

    !!ATTENTION!!

    I would kindly ask you to have you name and surname inside the ‘Name’ label, in doing this you will have it right next to your name in light blue and it would be easier for us to recognize you when you write a comment.
    Thank you!!

    Hi everyone!
    Yesterday’s conference was fantastic! I found the experience of Andrea Scianó really interesting because it is a very transversal history!
    He covered many topics about Silicon Valley, how Italians are considered there and also how much your network is important to achieve some goals.
    If yesterday you had not been able to connect, there is no problem! You can review the conference whenever you want at this link: videoconferece recording (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EX2d4tg05GcONYOw2aA3uzVNry42GY-N/view?usp=sharing)

    This morning I looked for the YouTube video that Andrea mentioned about Loris Degioanni and fortunately I found it!
    I put the link below, I highly recommend you to see it!

    This video is from 2011, when Loris was being director of Riverbed, just after the sale of Cace Technologies to Riverbed. The following year he founded Sysdig, where Andrea is still working.
    I would like you to discuss about the open source, the tool that allowed Loris to begin his entrepreneurial journey. The open source is one way to achieve more visibility and also to improve your informatics skills. Have you ever participate in an open source project? Do you know some interesting open source tool?

    Moreover, I would like to talk with you about the role of the network. Yesterday, Andrea said that his network has been central to his career. Do you think it is more important to develop a good network or your skills? Can a person without excelling at university, but with a good network, achieve certain results?
    Tell us what you think!

    PS: I had to post it two time because in the first post there is HTML language. I’m so sorry for this problem

    Hi guys!

    I see that my question has caused the interest of many, now I will try to answer everyone!

    @giuseppemissale
    hackathon proposal is a great idea! This forum is a channel where you can propose some projects, activities, whatever, to do with the other participants if they want! You must always be driven by resourcefulness and try new experiences.

    @alessandrocaruso
    thanks to link the video of the speech between Jack Ma and Elon Musk, because they are two of the best entrepreneurs of the world! I think that I’ll watch it in this day! About Elon Musk, in SVST 2019 we met the director technical operations of Tesla and he talked us about what it’s like to work every day with Elon Musk!

    @paologioelebrucia
    I really like your opinion about the smart working, if you find the article that explain the concept of smart working, you can link it in the forum, so who are not aware of it, can get better information!

    @desa
    I’m agree with you with the remote working, in Italy there is a lot of confusion about this two definition and I think terminology is important to avoid misunderstandings. During this quarantine I started to read the harari’s trilogy, from the book “21 rules for the 21th century” and now I’m reading “from animals to gods”. I suggest you this book, they are very interesting and they talk about how we have to change our behaviour, to face the evolution of technology. Do you have some books to recommend us?

    Hi everyone!
    We are very happy that the number of subscribers has increased over the past week.
    To begin with, we would like to talk to you about the opportunity to improve yourself and to widen your interests during this long period of quarantine. In foundr’s picture below, there is a list of tips that you can do. Which activities do you think it’s better to do during your daily quarantine’s routine? Why?
    Moreover, what are the differences between smart working and remote working?

    Tell us what you are doing, which podcast you are listening to, which book you are reading, what videos you are watching!
    For example, yesterday a friend of mine advised me to watch a documentary about Alpha go and I think it’s amazing!
    If you want to see it, this is the link:

    Hi guys,

    My name is Simone Dalledonne, I’m studying master degree of management engineering, innovation course, in Politecnico di Torino and I will be one of the two PoliTo SVST forum moderator.

    Last year I was selected from a group of student of my home town Verbano Cusio Ossola, in the north of Piedmont, to participate at Silicon Valley Study Tour 2019. This experience was amazing and like Stefano wrote before, this tour changes your life, your mind and your motivation.

    We’ll see you the 11 March 2020 at the first conference in PoliTo, coronavirus permetting, to talk about the SVST 2019 and the best takeaways of the tour!
