I first started programming when I was in school – my first program was written in Logos and it was drawing the Hydrogen atom on the screen. Shortly after, I guess I moved up a little bit because I started writing programs that were solving equations and other mathematic problems using BASIC, a pen, and a piece of paper (during communism era it was hard to get your hands on a computer). Since those early days I’ve worked with all sort of web related technologies and at some point I was even working as an Eclipse platform developer.
I am based in Bucharest, Romania.
Looking at my background I received my masters degree at Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology in the faculty of Databases and Server Side Programming. X-icco an Open Source “XML Database Engine for Mobile Devices” was my masters thesis project. It was also my first but not last close contact and participation in Open Source community. Actually I continue this today in other projects and also as part of my job at Adobe evangelizing Flex and other related technologies.
