Software Development

Fast Forward History

First taste of technology

I had access to my first PC (a x286) when I was 5 years old.
Throughout middle school, high school and college I made multiple interesting projects gaining experience in the IT field.

Web Design Skills

I've started building websites at the age of 13. Soon I was working my way into HTML, CSS and PHP. I've since then progressed to setting up my own VPS cloud environments.

Software Development

I started to learn programming when I was 14 years by creating IRC robots. At 15 I made my first pocket money from software development. I was extremely motivated by learning and experimenting with new exciting ways of development.

Powered by Linux

I switched full time to using Linux in 2009 and have been using it for everything on a daily basis. Most customers have no clue since most apps can be cross compiled or they end up seeing the frontend which is usually from a browser.

My Web Framework

I’ve also created my own Web based MVC framework for the NaviServer webserver. It was an unreplaceable and valuable experience in developing such a large project. I've spent 2.5 years refining it. Nowadays I'm using the the Phoenix Framework which is light years ahead any existing web framework.

Continuous Experimentation

In 2016-2017 I followed the Computer and Cyber Crime Professional college program as an early adopter.

In 2016 I had discovered Blender 3D and became extremely passionate about using it.

Next Generation Software Development

By discovering Elixir and Erlang (November 2017) I had a turning point my development career. The whole concept of combining software and hardware projects became crystal clear. The Elixir and Erlang/OTP ecosystem has everything under it to create fault tolerant, high availability and cloud based software with ease.
I've soon learned that the power provided by Elixir through the use of Erlang/OTP under the hood is unsurpassed. No other ecosystem can come close to it. For a DevOps like myself this is a great win. Elixir is built for concurrency and high availability.

This website has been made with Elixir and Phoenix.

Technology Used

Elixir, Tcl, PHP, C, Java, .NET (C# & VB)
JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, Rios.JS (React alike)
pagegreSQL, Linux, Vim, LaTeX, MySQL, SQLite,
+ Other open source future proof viable technology

Soft skills, Communication and Leadership

After graduating college in 2012 I actively began to polish up my softskills. I actively searched to work directly with clients on awesome projects.

I’ve always been fascinated about the human mind. Psychology and self development soon became something that helped me understand myself and every day situations.

From 2012 to 2016 I organized and helped manage a yearly volunteering summer work camp at Valea Plopului/Valea Screzii in Romania. Handling the registration, screening, interview and leading more than 150+ volunteers is a unique and valuable experience.

In January 2018 I joined Brasov Toastmasters Club. In July 2018 I was elected as Vice-President Membership. In January 2019 I was elected as the club President.
