Marcelo Paternostro


Marcelo Paternostro is a Senior Software Developer at Datadog. He was previously a Principal Engineer at Oracle, and also worked at IBM. For more than 20 years, Marcelo has been implementing software development tools, including VS Code extensions, browser IDEs, and Eclipse Components - in fact, he’s one of the authors of the 2nd edition of the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) book.

In the development tools domain, Marcelo has used and mastered many different technologies and techniques, including several data modeling standards, distributed software architectures, and infrastructure components. He is always keeping an eye on how new ideas can improve the workflows of developers and how to make writing good software a fun and rewarding activity. One of his most frequent sayings is that “simple things should be simple, complex things should be possible”: a motto that requires great attention and innovation to offer solutions that cater both to beginners and seasoned developers.

When he’s not on a programming spree marathon or a "hack-an-idea" session, Marcelo enjoys spending time with his wife, son, daughter, and friends. He’s also a martial artist, video game player, and an avid searcher of good restaurants.
