Andrea Saltarello
Andrea SaltarelloCEO @ Managed Designs


I am an entrepreneur and consultant in the Software Architecture field from Milan, Italy, serving as the CEO of Managed Designs while still being eager to write code in real projects in order to get feedback about my architectural decisions.

I am the lead developer of MementoFX (, an event sourcing framework aimed at making the development of “time travelling software” a breeze, and Merp (, and event-based Micro ERP developed with ASP .NET Core 2.1 .

As a trainer and speaker, I had several speaking engagements for courses and conferences across Europe such as TechEd Europe, Codemotion and DevWeek.

In 2001, I co-founded UGIdotNET (, the first Italian .NET User Group, of which I am the President and leader. My community efforts got me awarded as an ASP .NET MVP from 2003 to 2018 and in 2016 I was appointed Microsoft Regional Director.

I am passionate about music and head over heels for Depeche Mode, with whom I fell in love with since listening to Everything Counts for the first time.
