I'm a student in Milan, Italy. I study Computer Science and Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, and work as a back-end developer at Bottega52 while I study.

I started writing EtchDroid out of need. I was leaving for a trip and minutes before leaving I accidentally deleted the Minetest map I was going to play on while on the plane. I turned the computer off immediately. I needed a GNU/Linux live real quick to recover the file, and all I had was my phone.

Tl;dr I had to start a new map. I lost my nice Minetest house 😢

That's how EtchDroid was born. Two goals:
  • Be there to save your ass when your computer is dead
  • Be free as in freedom, not as in free beer
