He has been a part of Autodesk for over 20 years and my first meeting with him was in 2011, when we went to Manchester, NH for Citrix XenApp 6.0 training. Some of us came down from Toronto to the Boston and we waited for him at the airport to pick him up from Switzerland. I recall holding a sign with his name on it so I basically looked like a limousine driver.
My last (9/15/2015) online chat with him is below:
Carpe diem. There is no time like the present and there's no present like the time. If you have any fond memories of Giancarlo, please feel free to comment in this post.
