Hi there, Vlad here 👋

I'm a Software Engineer based in Romania, love to juggle with technologies and put my soul into every project to get the best out of it. Neo4j Certified Professional, NextJS fan, enthusiastic about JavaScript technologies, nostalgic WordPress lover, and the maintainer of Cărțile pe Față websites. I also like to travel around the country, so now I am in Ungureni, GL, RO, and tomorrow I might be somewhere else.

More about me

For the past five years, I have been working with JavaScript-based technologies with a focus on NextJS, NodeJS, and Tailwind CSS. This period was marked by the development and integration of a diverse spectrum of solutions for databases, storage, user management, and data analysis.

I have worked with startups, helping to create MVPs and take them to market. At the same time, I cultivated personal SaaS projects in which I invested creativity and innovation.

In the web sphere, I have taken responsibility for the maintenance of WordPress sites with the commitment to ensure their smooth operation. In addition, I am involved pro-bono in maintaining the infrastructure of the Cultural Association Carțile pe Față.

I am involved in the WordPress community in various ways: I am a General Translation Editor (GTE) in Romania, and I contribute to removing the language barrier and facilitating access to WordPress for a wider audience. Also, through my involvement in the WP-Translations PRO team, I promote high-quality translations. I also contribute to other open-source software localization on various platforms like Crowdin, Weblate, Transifex, Lokalise, and even GitHub.

I maintain the "euplatesc" NPM library for the integration of the EuPlătesc payment service.

I am attracted to projects that have a significant impact on society, especially in areas such as the environment, education, activism, and NGOs. I am determined to put technology at the service of great causes and help build a better future for all.
