Ahoy, my name is Mihai
• Full Stack Web Developer with ❤️ for Code ⌨️
Welcome to my personal vault, the place where I'm going to store bits of my daily life, that includes both professional experiences as well as random artifacts left behind by my ego. I'm not much skilled in addressing the public, but I'll be glad if you'll extract anything useful from this stash 😅
Nothing fancy here, I'm just an average dude who usually prioritizes facts in front of words, but long story short, I'm passionate about the basics of life, the most simple things are also the best and I love to craft new experiences across various fields such as Engineering, Music, and Design. I also enjoy cooking, and since nobody has died because of my meals yet, I think this can be considered an achievement
• Professional Experience
Don't let yourself be fooled by my current and past official job titles, even though I've been working mostly as a DevOps Engineer, professionally speaking, I'm still a full-stack developer in the core, this means that I enjoy researching, planning, building and deploying my projects from zero to hero! Current job titles that people love to show on their social media profiles are sometimes confusing and they could mean all and nothing at the same time the perfect example being DevOps itself.
• Technologies and Skills
• What I'm Learning
A serverless transactional Database with built in scalable API and native GraphQL Support. An awesome solution to integrate into any project that needs high availability persistend data on the edge!
A framework that is able to split entire applications into function chunks to run on Cloud Providers solutions that will auto-scale and provide secure and stable environments for any type of app!
• Personal Projects
During my free time, I use to work on Personal Projects that can vary from websites to desktop apps, always trying to include new technologies and implement as much as possible from scratch. This helps me discover awesome tools and libraries and also keeps me motivated during the development process. Graphics are also made by myself through Open Source tools such as Blender for 3D rendering and composing and Krita for sketch and adjustments.
Personally Speaking •
To keep it simple, I've never really settled anywhere during my life, been living in both Romania and Italy where I've been able to interact with a large range of people who left me with awesome experiences that I will never forget. I came into the programming world when I was in high school, fascinated by video games and the way websites started replacing desktop apps. To restore sanity during the day I made my primary hobby playing the guitar, something that I started before high school but never been consistent till recently. If you're having a hard time, it's better than therapy, I can guarantee!
Glasgow Kiss in E Standard by John Petrucci
After finishing high school in Italy, I've graduated from University in Romania at "Stefan cel Mare" under the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in the Software IT Department. It has been such an interesting experience that I would recommend to everyone, anytime, all you need from life and also, all you don't need is there, classmates, events, hangovers, exams...
• Volunteering for Good
I've been recruited into Beard Brothers during University, a national NGO whose HQ is located in Cluj-Napoca with local branches spread across the country (Suceava in my case), mostly focused on fundraising resources for social services, and the people that I met were just awesome, made by students, teachers, designers, programmers, everyone with a big heart and desire to help the community! I used to create and manage the visual design of the media that appears in official event's social media, and also to carry the heavy stuff for the events themselves if needed, I was the one with the beer shuttle for the afterparty!
Thanks for reading!•
You are one of the few adventurers who reached this spot, I would like to thank you for going through my website and enduring all the crap that I left behind about myself and also encourage you to get in touch with me if you think we might share any interest, being it professional or personal, or even just for a beer if you are local! As a reward I'll let you alone with some fine pieces of music to enjoy, it's what I'm listening to right now on Spotify!
