With more than 16 years of experience in the world of software, Alexandru shares about himself:

I’ve been passionate about learning as much as possible about software development. Between reading, trying out technologies and multiple programming languages, presenting and participating to developer communities and conferences, I have learned enough to write two books and teach hundreds of developers. 

I love working with smart people who want to get better at what they do, whether it’s team work, communication, management or technical skills. I offer you my passion, my experience and my capacity to adapt to your needs.
