Hi, I am Mircea.
I work as network engineer for Cloudflare and I spend most of my time writing code for network automation.
Back in time I begun as software developer, particularly for web backend. Learning Python, 2nd edition was the first serious book I read and today Python is the programming language I use the most. However, Ruby is still my favourite, although I can’t say I have extensive experience.
Before my university studies, I took a drastic decision over my career path and decided to make a sudden change. Although I was always fascinated about telecom, both radio and cable based transmissions, this was something totally new for me - barely I knew what a MAC address is. After several years of hard work I recuperated these drawbacks, and I still got tons of things to learn everyday.
I had the chance to experience the life in Switzerland, at EPFL, where I’ve been researching around parallel computing. Next stop was France where I applied some automation methodologies in the core of a service provider called iBrowse covering few countries in Europe. Latest country is now UK, being based in Cloudflare’s London office.
Besides networking I am very passionate about radio communications (especially mobile networks), mathematics and algorithms.
