At this moment i have not much time to write my entire story, maybe one day i'll spend a bit of time.. but my story can be reassumed with two main steps:

- 2013, when i was studying at school.
Teacher: Marco, do you want to enter in our android developing team?
Me: Of course prof, what i need to do? I never tried Android Studio
Teacher: Read about B4A, we develop using it
Me: You're crazy prof, i don't want to learn this language.. i hate basic, and i don't think this rad could let us to develop brilliant apps...

- 2020, meanwhile i'm working for a company in a fullstack team (mobile, BE with .Net, FE with Angular)
