Toastmasters truly is a place where you can develop certain skills which you would never be able to develop even if you attended the most exclusive seminaries.
No expensive 2 day public speaking workshop is going to help you as much as a Toastmaster membership will. And no, you won't learn how to make the perfect breakfast toast.
I'm not paid by Toastmasters International to write this. This is my personal opinion after I've reviewed the whole Toastmaster curriculum, program, membership events. I've even read many of the specific booklets created by Toastmasters International. I've come to this conclusion by comparing it to many other offers on the market.
I can truly state that Toastmasters is an truly benefical investment and a astounding way to help you succeed personally and professionaly. Read more
The cryptocurrency hype is just a waste of resources and time. The speculation will create a new bubble which will probably burst anytime now.
This article as my personal opinion and take on cryptocurrency. I've been watching and studying the whole movement for quite a few years.
I recieve invitatons to work on cryptorcurrenty and blockchain related projects almost every month. To top it off I hear acquintances and even relatives talk about it.
I believe that cryptocurrency was great for having provided the blockchain peer to peer crypto system. That's all.

This is an ATTENTION to all Elixir/Phoenix/Erlang users out there that use distributed nodes or software that uses nodes. Whenever I talk about Erlang or Elixir you can interpret both since it's the same underlying system at work.
I'm not talking about node.js. But about the distributed OTP programming system that beats the hell out every other programming language.
All programming languages want to do distributed programming like Elixir and Erlang do when they grow up. I've recently started implementing distributed OTP systems and I'm still awed by the powers of the Elixir, Erlang and OTP ecosystem!
NOTE: Windows users... you might have to figure out how to do it with Putty:) There is an inherent security "flaw" which could lead to big problems if let unattended. Read below for more info
In November 2017 I discovered Elixir which is based upon Erlang. I fell in love, and from the first moment, I read the Elixir Getting Started guide (.EPUB file download) I felt something mysterious.

Why I'm not on active on social media? Why don't I have a online presence on social media?
Dear Andrei Clinciu, we live in the 21th century. You NEED to be online. Your audience needs to know about you. You need to keep your followers up to date.

I get similar questions most of the time from people I know and from people that would like to "connect".
It's a pretty simple question if anyone would think about it. However looking for an in depth answer means that it has a rather complex methodology to get to the right conclusion(s). Read more
