Marco Fioretti / Freelance technical writing, and more

Some background

After graduating in Electronic Engineering, I worked from the mid-1990s to 2008 in the telecom industry (including a couple of years in the Silicon Valley), designing and testing ASICs, FPGAs and broadband telecom systems, using Unix and Linux on a daily basis. I started writing freelance in the early 2000s, going full-time in 2008. From 2015 to 2017 I also worked as researcher and Work Package Leader for Dissemination, future roadmap and sustainability in the EU-H2020 project DiDIY (Digital DIY).

What I write

Over the years, I have written a few hundreds of reviews, tutorials and other articles, mostly but not exclusively about Linux, Free/Open Source Software and programming languages, for many online and print magazines and organizations. I have also tutored several Linux courses for the Free Technology Academy.

In addition to that, I write technical content (not financial/business-oriented) about many ICT, telecom and microelectronics topics, including, but not limited to:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Cloud Computing
  • Data Centers
  • Digital Public Administration
  • IoT
  • Linux/Unix system administration
  • Microelectronics/Semiconductors
  • Network Automation and Management
  • Open Data/Open Government
  • Programming languages
  • Virtualization

Video, multimedia and infographics are not my cup of tea. This said, I can transform any combination of raw material, from interviews to design notes and source code comments into, among other things: user or technical documentation, corporate blog posts, white papers, case studies or sponsored books.

Other services

Last but not least, I am available to prepare and do talks, courses, seminars and webinars on several of the topics above.
