Luca Masini is a senior software engineer and architect, born as a game developer for Commodore 64 (Football Manager) and Commodore Amiga (Ken il guerriero). He soon converted to object-oriented programming and was attracted by the Java language since its early days in 1995.

He worked on this passion for Java as a consultant for major Italian banks, developing and integrating the main software projects for which he has often taken the technical leadership. He made them adopt Java Enterprise in environments where COBOL was the flagship platform, converting them from mainframe-centric to distributed.

He then shifted his focus toward open source, starting with Linux and then enterprise frameworks with which he was able to introduce concepts such as IoC, ORM, and MVC with low impact. He was an early adopter of Spring, Hibernate, Struts, and a whole host of other technologies that gave his customers a technological advantage and therefore development cost cuts in the long run.

After introducing these new technologies, he decided that it was time for the simplification and standardization of development with Java EE. So, he's now working in the ICT department of a large Italian company where he introduced build tools (Maven and Continuous Integration), archetypes of project, and Agile development with plain standards.

Now, his attention is focused on "mobilizing" the enterprise and he is working on a whole set of standard and development processes to introduce mobile concepts and applications for sales force and management.

He has worked on the following books by Packt Publishing:

  • Securing WebLogic Server 12c

  • Google Web Toolkit

  • Spring Web Flow 2

  • Spring Persistence with Hibernate

  • Spring Batch Essentials
