About

Hey, I’m Radu and this is my notebook with scribblings. Here you’ll find various bits of writing, some opinionated some less so.

I mainly build web applications and services, wearing different hats as needed:
fullstack, backend, devops; while mentoring and enabling others achieve their goals.

Over the years I’ve contributed to multiple commercial projects for British and Romanian companies involving technologies such as: Python, PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, Memcache, Gearman, Docker, Linux, AWS, AngularJS, VueJS, NodeJS.

Played a role in a couple of volunteer projects as well:
Jucaushii and Revolushii — both related to IT news publishing.

Post-graduate with an M.Sc. in Information Technology from PMU (thesis, Rom.).
Published “A Fault Tolerant, Peer-To-Peer Replication Network” at the IEEE Sibiu conference (paper, Eng.).

Some of my presentations can be seen on Slideshare. The newer ones are on Speakerdeck.
Most of my open-source code is hosted on Github, with legacy stuff on Bitbucket.

I’m a strong advocate for employee rights and better labour laws, for safe and inclusive work environments, and a supporter of trade union activity in Britain.

I fill my spare time doing various things: Electronics, HiFi, photography, biking, travelling, etc.
