Born in Buenos Aires (la Ciudad de la Furia), Argentina, Leonardo Luis Lazzaro has always been fascinated by the idea of creating something out of nothing. His first contact with computers began at an early age, fueled by classic video games like Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island.

By the age of 12, Leonardo was already running his own Bulletin Board System (BBS) using ProBoardBBS Software, making him one of the youngest participants in online communities in Argentina. The BBS allowed him to meet other tech enthusiasts who introduced him to the programming world. His fascination with computer demos from the demoscene became a strong motivation for his continued discovery in programming. 

Leonardo's academic path led him to study computer science at the prestigious Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA). He embarked on a Ph.D. in drug discovery, trying to apply computational skills to solve highly complex challenges on GPU simulations. However, his journey took a turn, leading him away from the academic world and becoming a Ph.D. dropout. With 12 years of experience in Python, Leonardo has developed a profound expertise in this programming language. He is proficient in several Python frameworks, including Flask, Pyramid, Django, FastAPI, and others, showcasing his versatility and deep understanding of web development and application design.
