Hi, my name is Bogdan Costea.
I’m a “never-going-to-mature”, normal guy, living in Bucharest, Romania. I have a beautiful wife and two children which I love very much.
I work as a development lead & more, crafting software for a lot of purposes including data collection, machine learning, eLearning and software protection.
Currently I’m a dev lead for Xogito, working on a big data project that crawls and automatically classifies information using machine learning and all sorts of juicy buzz words.
I travel a lot and I like it. My work takes me to distant places where I implement software that helps people do things better (or at least it’s what I like to think).
As a boy, I had the chance of being able to work with computers, in an age when in Romania, even having a VCR was a big deal. I met the Internet in ’97, as a 13 year old boy interested in computers and science-fiction.
I think software should be simple, it should be easy to use, it should do what you need and nothing you don’t.
In theory everybody knows this. In practice, everything is theoretical.
