I'm Daniele Margutti and I'm a software engineer with a strong passion for minimalism and product design.

theBacklog.in is a periodic newsletter with conversations on technology, management & leadership, design and programming.
In each issue, I take a deep-dive into one topic. Since my job is somewhat at the intersection of these topics I figured it would be good to write this stuff down.

While the old issues are published here you should subscribe to be the first one to read every single piece of content I make.

What topics you will read about

Since 2018 my work moved from daily development to a more management role. While my first passion still building things (mostly tools and libraries published on my github account) this new role helped me to have a better overview of the development lifecycle.
So while you will read about programming you will found also other topics: leadership and people management, design & usability and some marketing.
