About Myself

I love coding and coming up with creative solutions and figuring out the inner mechanisms of software systems.

Gathering knowledge has always been fun and enjoyable.

During the years I have worked to improve this gift by taking different work projects, personal projects and study courses.

I worked with Joomla for a bit more than 3 years, managing around 70 websites.

Daily Computing

Since most of my professional life revolves around computing, I came to become very picky about the tools and services I use privately.

I do computing on Debian GNU/Linux machines and strive to abide to the Free Software philosofy.

This means that I do my computing with FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) and I give back to the community of some of the software projects I use, such as Gnome and Debian.

Projects

Gnome

I am a proud member of Gnome Foundation and I contribute to the Gnome Project, mainly with translations and fixing localization issues. I have been contributing translations to Gnome since 2010, and now I am the Romanian Language Team Coordinator.

Debian

I contribute to Debian as well, I started small, contributing Romanian translations and I plan to work my way up and become a Debian Developer.

Other projects

I contribted shortly to Ubuntu, Liberapay and other smaller projects.

Language skills

Romanian
Mother tongue
English
Academic proficiency
Danish
Working proficiency

Social

I am using some of the social media. However I tend to refrain from using sites that take away the control of the data from the user.

Therefore you might find my social media choice a bit "exotic".

Without further do here are my social media accounts:

Mastodon
I use the mastodon.technology instance to get my technology and privacy news.
Minds
I sparsely use minds.com, but I hope it will get better and become "a better" facebook.
Linkedin
This is my one and only PRISM-favourable social network. I will jump off as soon as I can manage to find something simillar where I can own my data.
