Elio is a UX Designer based in Berlin, Germany. He spends most of his time helping bring better design and usability to open source tools. Coming from a hackerspace community background, he struggled to understand how open source development processes and design can go hand in hand. As he explored this question throughout various Open Source projects, he got involved with communities like Mozilla, The Tor Project, Fedora, Thunderbird and others.
Most of Elio's daily work consists of doing UX Design at Censored Planet and Ura. As a volunteer he also helps out at Open Source Design and Mozilla Tech Speakers. In the past he was a technical author for SitePoint, a member of the Open Labs Hackerspace and co-organizer the first five editions of OSCAL (aka Open Source Conference Albania)
