Hello! I am a passionate software engineer working mostly in the embedded networking world. I have a degree in Computer Science from the Politechnica University in Bucharest, major in Compilers and Operating Systems and have recently obtained an Android Developer Nanodegree from Udacity.
I have been an embedded software engineer for the past 12+ years, developing and maintaining software for a range of Ethernet devices. During this time I have been responsible for various parts of these systems, ranging from the higher levels of networking protocols like VLAN, STP, SNMP to chip drivers and distributed programming across Ethernet switches. At some point I started leading software releases and did a partial shift to project management, while still maintaining a keen interest in the embedded software practice. In the past few years I have added Android and Arduino on my list of interests and I am now working on a small pet project related to air quality, tying these two platforms together.
I usually prefer learning by example. So, it is only natural that this becomes my preferred way of teaching as well. My lectures are filled with examples that illustrate the main presented concept or topic.
I'm looking forward to seeing you in my courses!
