I've been a Network and Software Engineer for over 15 years, the typical profile of a DevOps Engineer.
I've co-founded Crystal Mind Academy, a Cisco Academy and professional training center in Romania, that focuses on teaching cutting-edge technologies to students.
I have contributed to education in the areas of programming, information security, and operating systems. During the last 15 years, more than 50,000 thousand students have participated in in-person or online training programs at Crystal Mind Academy.
I have developed documentation, labs, and case studies for many training programs such as Cisco CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNP, Linux Administration, Information Security, Python Programming, Network Automation with Python or Blockchain Programming (Ethereum/Solidity) which have been successfully attended by thousands over the years.
When I'm not working, I crossfit, read a good book, enjoy a good time or travel with my wife and children.
The Academy’s goal is to teach hundreds of thousands of people cutting-edge technologies in the fields of Programming and Networking.
Our philosophy is that courses should be taught by real professionals with substantial experience in the industry, who are also great teachers.
