Romanians and diacritics

Working on an app that is heavily depended on diacritics is kind of strange. Especially with libraries not always supporting diacritics. Realm I’m perfectly aware it may not be a common request and I don’t blame the guys for not implementing it by default. There are other more pressing issues (array of int & string, […]

So I missed a day…

Managed somehow to brake the chain of daily posting… Basically had a very full day. Implement a new feature for an app that was launched yesterday (who the fk does that…). Launch the app in more flavors than initially discussed. Then I had to meet a client and the discusson took  longer than expected… When […]

In a love/hate relationship

In a really really love/hate relationship with recruiters… but as far as  I know most developers are. I’ve met some really really cool people when going to a job interview. My favourites being Vlad Ionescu-Darzeu and Oana Udrea. Really good communication, at one point I forgot to get a call in with them, and they gently reminded me […]

Custom made agile

Was having this incredible talk with someone regarding the methodology they’re using and it went something like: Yes, we’re using a kind of Agile, but it’s custom made to suit our needs. Me: So… you have sprints, daily meetings and stuff? Well, sort of, we have meetings when I have something to tell the team and […]

What libraries i use

Around two years ago, waaaay before AS came out and before I got the approval to use it in the company projects, we used eclipse. With eclipse, before i started to work on any project, I had to almost copy/paste A LOT of code that now comes with just a line of code with Android […]

What i write

I’m a programmer, i’m an entrepreneur and i’m a human. This blog is mainly about my daily interactions with different stuff, a lot of them happened a few months ago but will wait with posting about them so it doesn’t impact the situation that i am in that moment (for example, an interview). I will […]

I’m less ignorant now

Two years ago I published one of the ugliest games that Play Store has EVER seen. Somehow, don’t know how, it got to number 7 most downloaded apps on Play Store in that period. Reaching around 200.000 downloads. Things have changed “Recently”, i ‘got’ myself a new girlfriend, she’s a UI/UX designer(check her work out) […]

Tossing blame

In a previous article written in Romanian, I wrote about how much I hate it when people can’t admit their mistakes or be responsible for what they did. It’s very common for developers to say: this previous guy did a lousy job, i can do it better! Heck even I said it a few times. […]

I’d like to code naked…

Fear not, people, i’m not coding naked… but When i was still in college, i used to think that when I will get a job, I’ll always come dressed up nice, maybe with a suit on. I love to suit up. When i got my first job, my boss would come to work in slippers, […]


God i used to hate that show… but now i love it. And i learned a couple of things from it. One being explained here: Basically, trying to get into a straight line of writing stuff. Mostly relevant stuff to IT, but i might write stupid rants as well. Anyway, this is what i’m using […]
