Hello! My name is Florin and I am a software developer and engineer, currently living in the beautiful city of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. My story begins in the hometown of Arad, where I lived for the first 21 years of my life. Following the “Vasile Goldiș” National College, I developed a passion for Information Technology and everything that comes with it. Afterwards, I attended the “Aurel Vlaicu” University of Arad, where my passion continued to grow on me. With an Erasmus mobility in the amazing city of Coimbra, Portugal, I was offered the possibility to observe the academic way of life of another country, as a student at Instituto Superior Miguel Torga, and enjoy the wonders that this city had to offer. Of course, I didn’t stop at the outskirts of Coimbra, so by the time I finished all of my exams, I took a country-wide travel and mesmerized at all the beauty and serenity that Portugal was putting at my disposal. Returning home, I finished my bachelor’s thesis and earned “cum laude”, my Bachelor of Information Technology diploma. With a strong desire to continue my studies and fuel the passion that started in my youth, I moved to Cluj-Napoca, where I attended the Software Engineering master’s degree courses at Babeș-Bolyai University.
A great development opportunity, that takes its toil to this day, is my active participation within the National Organization of Romanian Scouts. From the young age of 14, I became a scout, and ever since I’ve enjoyed the wonderful moments, friends and knowledge that this world-wide movement has to offer. Recently, I was offered the opportunity to “send the elevator back down“, and since 2015 I offer my support to the organization as a web developer and software engineer for various national projects (Festivalul Luminii, RoJAM 2.0 17). Between 2016 and 2017 I held the E-Learning Manager position for the National Department of Human Resources, where along side my colleagues we are developing an online E-Learning Platform. Currently I represent the organisation as the IT&C commissioner and serve as the strategic coordinator of the TECHnological project.
Concerning my professional experience, I have worked as a programmer from the age of 18, within various work environments such as Moodle Romania or Althuss France. Currently I am a Python developer (and enthusiast) at Spyhce. Following a change of heart and mind, I started my professional development as a Frontend Developer and currently I am occupying a position within the 8vance team where I put this knowledge to good use.
With the little free time that I have left, one of my leisure activities, which I enjoy, is photography. If you want you can check my work at 500px and if you like it, don’t hesitate to appreciate it 🙂
