One of the consequences of Oval's growth was the inevitable duplication of names. So, the second Stefano became Scerelli, or Scere, or Ceres, or "our own Johnny Depp" :-)
No matter what we call him, he's quickly become Oval's nomadic icon. It's hard to keep track of his movements: one day he's in his flat in London, for a couple of days he'll be camping in the living room of a colleague in Turin, and then he'll be off to Iceland in a van...
You'll get a taste of Scerelli's uniqueness from the answers he's given to his anniversary interview, but that's what makes him a perfect fit to be a front-end developer in an organisation as extraordinary as ours!
Scerelli's year in numbers:
💻 27,868 lines of code written
📣 +∞ times mentioned GraphQL, annoying his colleagues
🐉 15,630 minutes playing Dungeons & Dragons
🌏 8 countries visited in 3 continents
