I am a software developer working for Microsoft in Cambridge, UK. I am working on the coolest boxed product in the world - Visual Studio. I am working on features part of the Ultimate version of VS, specifically those related to ALM (app lifecycle management).
I originally come from Bucharest, Romania, where I did my studies (BS in Computer Science and Engineering and MS in IT Project Management) and started my career (I’ve been developing for since 2006 in Bucharest). After that I moved to Paris, France where I worked for 2 years for Microsoft developing various projects around entertainment - music, video and xbox.
I’ve worked on quite a few projects and came to love industry programming with all it’s ups and downs.
I’ve been involved in training quite a lot, starting from assistant professor at the university and then doing crash courses in programming for manual testers that wanted to move up.
I like discovering things, so you’ll often find me reading some on some research project, new methodology (although those are mostly boring) or doing a proof of concept.
