Dario Freddi found his love for Qt by being strongly involved in several open source projects since his early years - in particular KDE, to which he started contributing in 2007, and never stopped. From there on, he signed up as a Qt Ambassador and specialized in freedesktop.org technologies integration, writing Qt bindings to several open source frameworks such as polkit and Telepathy.
He is a regular speaker to some of the most important Open Source conferences worldwide, usually on Qt-related topics.
Qt has been an integral part of his academic and work life since forever - his degree in Information Engineering came with a thesis over an abstract communication system for musical devices completely built on top of Qt. Afterwards, he worked as a freelance consultant for several important companies around the globe, and nowadays he runs Ispirata, a company providing services and products built around KDE and Qt technologies.
