Code Poems: 2010-2019 by Fancesco Aprile with an introduction by Volodymyr Bilyk is available now at Amazon!

This book is a collection of "Code poems" that the author wrote between 2010 and 2019. He used different languages: pseudocode, Html with Javascript, Css, Php and Laravel, found code, command-line executions and git, errors log from Katalon, Mvn and Katalium. The recent history of writing provides a large part of the context for the reception of the information technology in literature. After a high school diploma about information technology, the author studied Science of Philosophy. During degree course, he matured the idea to work on relations between code and poetry. His first research in this field takes the name of "Poetic algorithm" (2010). With his first poetic algorithm, written in pseudocode, he won in 2016 the Source Code Poetry Challenge in "Most artistic" category. Code poems are cracks in the technical workflow, a poetic manumission in a language that is stranger for the poetry. Codes reveal the differential state of themselves as writing and poem, but these are always codes.

"Aprile is the Jeff Wall of techno-debris. His poems are short circuits, cracks in a technical workflow, hidden in plain sight inside a cityscape of stack traces."
