About Me [+]

This is my writing place, generated as a static site with Jekyll. It collects the more time-resistant things I've written since 2003/2004 (older posts are mostly Romanian, recent ones mostly in English).

I'm a indie software developer in Romania. Almost a decade ago I started blogging while getting my MSc degree from Ecole Polytechnique, Paris (France). Starting with 2006 I've been working from home as a freelancer/consultant. I wrote my first iPhone apps in 2008; since then, iOS apps became my exclusive focus and passion.

Out of my tens of smaller or bigger apps, the ones you definitely should check out are:
