About Me

Hi, I'm Radu! :)

Who am I?

Hi, and thanks for the visit! I’m an open source software developer and I sometimes speak to user groups, meetups and conferences. I’m really passionate about containers, orchestrators, serverless computing, continuous everything and the cloud.

I like to see myself as a “friendly geek who accelerates developers to build epic stuff” and work as Software Engineer in the Microsoft Azure Containers Team, building Kubernetes, containers and cloud native open source developer tools.

In the past I was a Technical Evangelist @Microsoft and helped software development companies architect, develop and scale their solutions in the cloud.

I also like to engage with the local startup ecosystem - this way, I’ve been a technical mentor in a few Romanian accelerators and pre-accelerators and helped founders scale their products with the cloud, and think teaching children about computers and programming is important, and enjoy participating in Hour of Code events.

If you’re in Bucharest, Romania, be sure to check the Bucharest Container Meetup for events - and if you want to speak here, just ping me :)

What is this blog about?

This is the place I sometimes write about projects I’m working on - it is mostly about containers, orchestrators, serverless, Go, .NET Core and the cloud. Please keep in mind that the views and opinions presented here are my own and are not affiliated with any organization I am part of.

What am I working on?

I’m always working on fun little projects, so check out my GitHub profile.

That being said, I’ve worked on things like a websocket manager for .NET Core, adding support for LinuxKit on Azure, adding native Go in Azure Functions and I frequently contribute to open source developer tooling for Kubernetes such as Draft and the VS Code Kubernetes extension.
