About

Hey there, I’m Radu Potop and this is my notebook with scribblings. Here you’ll find things which I’d typically keep written on various sheets of paper piled upon my desk.

I mostly do web dev: front-end, back-end, and a bit of Linux-ing here and there. Basically all that’s needed to have web apps up and running. I believe that we should develop applications that are intuitive, a joy to use, which enable us to spend less time in front of a computer. Every now and then I like to do a bit of electronics, photography, and graphic design.

In the past I have contributed to a couple of volunteer projects: Jucaushii and Revolushii - both being related to games news publishing.
And multiple commercial projects both for Romanian and UK based companies, involving technology stacks such as AngularJS, NodeJS, Python. Oh and a lot of PHP too.

I published “A Fault Tolerant, Peer-To-Peer Replication Network” in 2010 (paper, eng.).
In 2011 I graduated with a M.Sc. in Information Technology from Petru Maior University (thesis, rom.).

Some of the presentations I’ve given can be seen on Slideshare.
In my spare time I like to work on projects which I find fun and challenging. Most of my code is hosted on Github and Bitbucket.

Here’s a video with beautiful Transilvania, Rom├ónia - the place where I was born.

I use Google+ and Twitter as a sort of bookmark collection of shareworthy stuff (doesn’t everybody?). Sometimes I post on Instagram too, more intensely after holidays. For work related matters I mainly use the above email address and rarely Linkedin.
