I want a Dacian in Bucharest - Interview with Alexandru Voiculescu

We talked to Alexandru Voiculescu, the founder of PureQuad, an IT Romanian company which chose to get involved in the project I want a Dacian in Bucharest, a project supported by the Association of Contemporary Cultural Identity (AICC).
Ovidiu Mățan: What is the connection between an IT company and a project that seeks to relocate a statue from Florence to Bucharest by creating a copy of it?
Alexandru Voiculescu: Obviously the connection exists because of the people and their ideas. My connection with the initiators of this project runs for over a decade, given the IT projects and the outsourcing we have been caring out since 2004.

Interview with dr. Venkat Subramaniam

Lőrinc Pap: Hello Venkat, we would be very interested in your take on programming in general, and on functional programming in particular.
Venkat Subramaniam: Well, first of all, thanks for having me here. It’s a pleasure to talk to you and to your listeners. So, programming is something that is life to me, in a lot of ways. I’ve been programming for a few decades now and, often times, people ask: “How come you’re a programmer after all these years?”

Interview with Cătălin Beșleagă

Hello! I am Cătălin Beșleagă, and I was born and raised in Dorohoi. Around the age of 8-9 years old, with my brother, I learned what the format command does, and, later on, I discovered what the boot sector does, after having erased it trying to free some disk space. The first contact I had with development started when I was around 10 years old at “Clubul Copiilor”, where I attended an initiation class in BASIC. I graduated IT at UBB and then I enrolled in an MA on Databases. I love to travel and learn about different cultures. I enjoy mountain trekking and photography, and I recently discovered I am passionate about flying.

The IT road is paved with your own effort

I was talking with an old friend of mine the other day about how we perceive each other, about the things that matter when we perceive others, about their professional success or about their career models. The strategy for career development in one direction or the other was influenced by the expectations that we had and the things we really wanted. Progress is measured based on the accomplished projects and the knowledge we gain. I believe that it is no longer enough to look in one direction only. We need to assimilate the experience of several perspectives to answer the labor market needs.

Interview with Ionică Bizău

Hello, Ionică. Despite the fact that you are very young, you are a developer who has many achievemnts on GitHub and on StackOverflow. Can you introduce yourself and tell us a couple of words about yourself?

My name is Ionică Bizău (translated in English that would be Johnny B. :smile:). I build things and random stuff. I’m a web developer, and usually, I spend my days in a *nix terminal window, writing code in VIM (the amazing text editor). I also play piano, love science (especially Physics and Maths).

Interview with Eddy Vermeire, CEO @ ISDC, about Endava merging

We had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Eddy Vermeire, CEO @ ISDC, about the recent merge with Endava.

Both iSDC and Endava are international companies with development centers in Cluj. It was a surprise the recent fusion between both companies. What did determine this change and what opportunities do you see here ?

There was a private equity stake in ISDC, which was keen to sell during 2016, so the ISDC board made sure they found a suitable buyer. Endava's cultural alignment, growth ambitions and track record made it the outstanding candidate to provide a secure and exciting future for our people. Similarly, for Endava, ISDC represents an ideal match providing real engineering expertise and quality, further strength in financial services and an opportunity to expand its presence selling in Europe as well as the delivery centres in Romania and Bulgaria.

Interview with Robbert Visser about SkinVision

My resume is actually not complete, looking at your question, but this is also not something of interest to me. Doing the things in life that I really like and believe in makes it more manageable. Over the years, I learned that, if you don’t really believe in something, it gets very hard to do that particular thing. This is most likely a formula for failure. Besides that, it is just a matter of working hard and going forward.
