Our People: Luca Violanti

While he has always liked computers, Luca discovered the noble art of Computer Programming only when he was 19: already convinced about dropping out of Mechanical Engineering, he taught himself the basics of C reading "A Book on C". He graduated with a degree in Computer Science from the University of Genoa, but his thirst for theoretical knowledge was not placated until he moved to Turin, where he took his MSc.

Born and raised in Italy, Luca has always loved British comedy and music, and dreamt of moving to the UK since he was a kid. He joined NCR Edinburgh in March 2015 as a Software Engineer.

Being Italian, Luca loves to talk: his favourite topics include coffee, funny YouTube videos and pseudoscience. He plays football (badly) and old school video games.

His mid-term life goals include visiting all the Canary Islands and owning an arcade machine.
