Hi! My name is Alexandru Simonescu (long and weird name, i know), but feel free to call me Alex. I’m a passionate software developer, living in Madrid (Spain), mainly focused on mobile applications with native Android and web applications.
Broadly speaking, i look for ways of developing creative and resourceful solutions for technological demanding needs. As John Lennon says, i don’t believe in problems, but solutions.
“There are no problems, only solutions” - John Lennon
Known for having a very curious mind, and decisive person. While working one of my missions is to achieve stable, fast and secure applications, also worrying about maintainability and architecture.
Some years ago, i wrote a blog about security, later about software development in spanish and today in english, trying to reach as more people as possible and also practicing and improving my english.
In my free time i work on personal projects, some of then being or plan to be open source, practicing Yoga, learning new skills or improving existing ones. One phrase i really love and also expresses my own thoughts about programming is:
“Computer programming is an art, because it applies accumulated knowledge to the world, because it requires skill and ingenuity, and especially because it produces objects of beauty.”
Donalds Knuth (1974)
