I am a senior full-stack software developer, with advanced knowledge of PHP, .NET, and Swift, based in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. I produce new media content for Burzcast™. I've built some businesses around my core skills, and I am really proud to be a father and husband.
I have more than 15 years in the IT industry. I've started working at a local computer store when I was studying at the university, back in 2006 and switched exclusively to software in 2009 when the economic crisis hit Romania and saw the hardware sales drop to the lowest in over 10 years.
Since 2009 I've worked exclusively on software development, building software products for a myriad of vertical industries, built businesses around these skills and help over a hundred companies with the projects I've completed.
Social Media helps everyone get in front of their potential customers through properly crafted content. Sometimes I post interesting things I do or learn or acquire on the social Internet. This is my Instagram "wall" and then some. And yes, I love to cook, to disconnect, after a full day of work. 🙂
Once a 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 6 years already and I really love every minute spent in the company of the great guests I have the honor to talk to.

While studying at the university, I've started working at a small, local, computer store, in the afternoon. My job involved consulting our clients on what to buy, configuring and building (actual assembly of each computer system, except for laptops, obviously) and fixing malfunctioning computers. Those were the days when everyone was actually buying computers, not tablets or smartphones for simple, everyday tasks.
While working at the computer store, some clients came in to ask for specific, custom, software products, which I've built on behalf of one of my old brands and some on behalf of the company. Some clients also came in, knowing about websites and they wanted some custom-built websites. Back in the days, I've started working with pure PHP and .NET Framework, with web forms.
Gathered all needed documents and started incorporating my new company, which I own and run, now, for more than 10 years.
During these 3 years, I've built many projects for clients in Romania, Canada, and Germany, on behalf of my newly created brand, back in the days, Dev-Vision. The verticals I was serving were automotive, pharmaceutical, medical, services, real estate, electronics.
In 2012 I've signed with an American Internet of Things company based in the United States and started building software products for their Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) devices. I was using ASP.NET and Windows Forms with C# and loads of Microsoft SQL Server with some PHP on the side (these PHP scripts were meant to run on the device itself). During this year I've also established some strong relationships with companies in the local region for which I do outsourcing services even to these days.
The IoT company in Atlanta got its device line bought and I've started doing consultancy and outsourcing for the company who bought the US one. As part of the services, I've also done some more PHP and WordPress websites. Besides, I've also grown my portfolio of clients and started some new businesses. I also did some outsourcing projects for some US-based medical companies with really interesting medical software needs. By this time I was already serving clients in over 8 countries around the world.
Switch almost exclusively to Apple products. I am using their products extensively. .NET Core started with a real roadmap and it is available on all platforms, be that Windows, macOS or Linux. I've also started some new brands in the new media space, such as my new Romanian podcast, Burzcast™. I've also started my public speaking career. I am growing my businesses and personal brand and I've added clients in the UK, the US, Romania, Germany, Italy, and Spain to my portfolio of clients served.
