About me

Jonathan Argentiero

my story so far

My name is Jonathan Argentiero and i was born in the year 1985, in the fascinating town of Como, in the north of Italy.

I grew up at the same time the web florished and became what we all love today. I felt my love for technology from the first time i turned on a PC and such passion grew day by day.

I graduated as an Informatic Engineer at the renowned Polytechnic University of Milan.

While studying, i started to accomplish some small jobs as a young freelancer, from web design to simple technical assistance. A stage in a communication company completed my education cycle.

Today i work in Paris as an experienced web developer and programmer, refining my skills day by day with passion and dedication.

my programming blog
please google help me picture

Programmers blogs, open source projects and senior developers efforts are a fundamental help to deal with coding issues.

It thus felt natural to have a space to share the little hints i hardly found on google, expecially tips for newcomers.

These tips are especially meant for newcomers, since I think the beginning is the most critical part of everything. The blog received more than 15k visit during the first year (mostly rebounds :P) and more gratitude than i expected.

Feel free to give a look and who knows, you could find something useful even if you are already an experienced developer :)

backend scripting
jonathan argentiero php

PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language.

PHP is the magic that runs the majority of the websites, Facebook and Wikipedia implement this language, like every other Wordpress website in the world.

I've experienced from simple implementations to complex frameworks during all my three years of php experience:

  • Plain PHP
  • PHP Frameworks (Symfony2, Silex, Zend)
  • PHP CMS (eZpublish, Wordpress, Joomla)

frontend scripting
jonathan argentiero javascript

JavaScript (JS) is a dynamic computer programming language. It is most commonly used as part of web browsers, whose implementations allow client-side scripts to interact with the user, control the browser, communicate asynchronously, and alter the document content that is displayed. It is also being used in server-side programming, game development and the creation of desktop and mobile applications.

Born from simple necessities, Javascript is now becoming a proud and complex language, being able to lead the web in a new generation of frameworks, servers and graphical improvements.

Shining with Javascript is not an option anymore for web developers.

  • Plain Javascript and Canvas
  • Javascript Libraries (jQuery)
  • Javascript Servers (NodeJS) and Websockets
  • Javascript Frameworks (AngularJS)

frontend scripting
jonathan argentiero html

HTML or HyperText Markup Language is the standard markup language used to create web pages.

The purpose of a web browser is to read HTML documents and compose them into visible or audible web pages. HTML describes the structure of a website semantically along with cues for presentation, and it is thus markup language rather than a programming language.

HTML coding nowadays primary means keeping search engines optimization always in mind, respecting the w3c standards.

  • HTML semantic knowledge
  • New HTML5 features
  • SEO knowledge

frontend scripting
jonathan argentiero css

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the look and the formatting of a document written in a markup language.

CSS is designed primarily to enable the separation of the document content from the presentation, including elements such as the layout, colors, and fonts. This separation can improve content accessibility, provide more flexibility and control in the specification of presentation characteristics, enable multiple pages to share formatting, and reduce complexity and repetition in the structural content.

Mastering this language is a must for every frontend developer.

  • Plain CSS, Media Queries, CSS3 Animations
  • Responsive Design
  • Sass / Less precompilers
  • CSS frameworks (Foundation, Bootstrap)

query language
jonathan argentiero sql

Structured Query Language is a special-purpose programming language designed for managing data held in a relational database management system (RDBMS).

Originally based upon relational algebra and tuple relational calculus, SQL consists of a data definition language and a data manipulation language. The scope of SQL includes data insertion, data query, data update and delete, schema creation and modification, and data access control.

  • Plain SQL querying
  • DBMS integration (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite)
  • NoSQL (Amazon)
  • ORM/DBAL (Doctrine)

Server management

system administration
jonathan argentiero unix

The term "Web server" can refer to either the hardware (the computer) or the software (the computer application) that helps to deliver web content that can be accessed through the Internet.

Having the necessary knowledge to setup a running server is always a nice plus for a web developer who wants to be independent and versatile.

  • Linux Distros (Debian and Centos) and Amazon servers
  • LAMP systems setup and management
  • GIT-type repository setup and use
  • a lot of other small useful things :)

C & C++

backend language
jonathan argentiero c

C is one of the most widely used programming languages of all times, and C compilers are available for the majority of available computer architectures and operating systems.

Many later languages have borrowed directly or indirectly from C, including Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, Python and of course C++.

Having a basic knowledge of this strong and still widely used language is a nice plus for every developer.

  • Basic C/C++ knowledge
  • Object oriented scripting

backend language
jonathan argentiero java

Java is a computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible.

It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere" (WORA), meaning that code that runs on one platform does not need to be recompiled to run on another.

Having a basic knowledge of this strong and still widely used language is a nice plus for every developer.

  • Basic Java knowledge
  • Object oriented scripting
  • Basic Servlet/JSP scripting

jonathan argentiero anilinkz tracker

Anilinkz Tracker is a site built around my favorite anime stream portal, Anilinkz.com, in order to provide an easy way to track my favorite anime episodes and at the same time to collect and keep a collection of what i have seen and liked.

I developed this site just for myself, and even if it's not the most used service on the web i still find it priceless :)

About this website

new jonathanargentiero.com
jonathan argentiero anilinkz tracker

I decided to create a new website in late 2013: after a couple of year of experience my old site seemed a relic of my past, so it was time for a change.

I wanted something original, funny and interesting, so i had the idea of this "smartphone-like” website.

I enjoyed myself developing something so different from my usual projects. :)


I didn't minified any code on this site, if you feel like using anything you find here you're welcome!

I used the following technologies:

  • Animate.css: a really nice collection of css animations
  • Sociality: as a base for icons
  • The rest is the same old things with a canvas for the pages and the interface
