Years of Coding
I am a 36 years old, programmer, podcaster, blogger, and coffee enthusiast, born and raised in the beautiful city of Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
I have a podcast, Burzcast, which I am hosting and producing for 7 years.
I am a believer in Paul Jarvis's philosophy of keeping your company as small as possible for as long as possible and this is why I will always only hire new people or outsource the work when and where necessary.
Working for myself proved to be quite a ride. I've been involved in some capacity on projects for clients in countries like Romania, Germany, Holland, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Canada, Russia, Iran, United Arab Emirates, and the United States, serving them with products and services for various vertical industries.
I believe in a world where people experience less friction between technology and their day to day activity, where technology improves the lifes of its users, keep their data private and enhances their lives.
Years of Coding
Once per week I host a Romanian Podcast, called #Burzcast™ where I invite technologists, managers, journalists, researchers, developers, productivity experts and many, many friends and really cool persons.
I chat with these guests and try to keep the sound and content quality as high as possible.
I'm doing the Burzcast™ Podcast for 7 years already and I really love every minute spent in the company of the great guests I have the honour to talk to.
I have a development background. During my 16 years in the industry I have written millions of lines of code for a myriad of software products running on Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS and Android devices. I've built software and web applications for various vertical industries, such as: Consumer, Education, Engineering, Energy, Food and beverage, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Media, Online, Real estate, Retail, Telecommunications, Travel and Environment.
I speak, via video or audio, online streaming, to whomever would listen. My native language is Romanian, but I can also give talks in English, should you need me to. I talk about development on cloud computing, Microsoft technologies, LAMP stack, podcasting, blogging, vlogging (or general new media stuff) and business strategies. I gave public talks about the security of the Internet of Things. In 2020 I hosted the main stage for the largest Romanian tech conference, DevTalks.
Since 2014 I produce and host a Romanian audio podcast. Since last year I've been involved with vlogging and video production and I'm writing blog posts and articles online for more than 12 years. Many of my blog posts are in Romania, over on the Burzcast™ website (the new media content website I run). Should you need consultancy on how to grow your audience, make your brand be heard online or just share your knowledge, let me know.
