I'm the #44 user on the site to get a gold badge in jQuery! :)

My profile on linkedin and on stackoverflow Careers and a link to my radio show to twitter and to my new blog

I started programming when i was 16 because i loved Computers. I started studying C++ all by myself and found my first jobs (mainly C++ and Access works).

I studied medicine (took 48 exams out of 52) but that wasn't my dream job. My first job as a full time programmer was for the Politecnico (the most important engeineering University in Italy), where i worked with software and industrial engeineers that taught me everything about the software lifecycle and agile methodologies like Scrum, so even if i didn't study computer science i've got a good background on software engeineering.

After two years and a half of full-time development with PHP/jQuery, i did Java/Oracle for six months to strengthen up my OOP skills. I'm back to PHP/jQuery right now.

I worked 14 years in the night life of Milan, managing clubs and bars while djing a lot, both for clubs and radio stations. I also did a lot of freelance LAMP developement during those times.

Right now, i'm a technology freak who really loves coding. I'm really passionate about what i do.

I used SCRUM in all of my projects and also did a little Project Management

I'd love to work on new tecnologies (node.js for example, or Android), but it's something that's very difficult to do here in italy

comment I need to generate the CSS for my plugin from a function, how do i map a request to a function in the front-end?
@Otto maybe it's because i didn't explain fully my problem :). I generate my CSS with less, and i'm giving to the end user the possibility to change the value of some variables. After the variables are changed, i recompile the Css and store it somewhere ( APC if present, file-system or db ) and so i must generate the CSS in the way i wrote in my question. So it's 4.000 lines of CSS. Do you have a better way to do this?

@Otto i totally agrre with the answer provided here, the solution is to get caching right, not putting 4.000 CSS lines inline. And this would be true even with 500 lines of CSS.

Actually i'm working on a plugin so i would have to make some checks to see if etags are on or off. Do you think that there is no performance gain in pointing to a single file?So that i do not have to bootstrap Wordpress just to grab the CSS?

I'me almost done with the refactoring and i'm quite happy about it. I managed to load jQuery and do not touch wordpress version, in this way my plugin use my version of jQuery and it's totally indipendent from the wordpress version it's running on.
