I am Catalin - web developer, father of two terrific twin boys, husband, and constant learner!
I live in Oradea, Romania I am a self-taught web developer (Laravel, VueJs, NodeJs, LAMP/LEMP stack, web apps architecture, API design/development/integrations, payment processors integrations, etc) and passionate about all things related to the topic but also on the startups' world.
I work at a local web studio 11Digits were we create great experiences for small to medium businesses and startups from marketing websites (mainly WordPress projects) to medium/large web applications / CRM / ERP. So if you are in need of something like this, don’t hesitate to give us a shout.
We are actively supporting and constantly improving TapTasty.com - we offer a full package of custom Android and iOS + infrastructure to manage your online selling and marketing campaigns if you have a business doing delivery, a restaurant, pizza place or something similar. We kicked off the first apps in production in the summer of 2019 and we have other customers that signed with us and that will be launching their apps in the first 3 months of 2020.
Another project is Inpreto.com a great tool to manage your customers, invoices, quotes, estimates, and expenses/income.
One of my side projects is confdesk.com - a SaaS that aims to help people running a call for papers, call for speakers for conferences, symposiums, sending invites, running peer reviews with their editor/reviewers, payments, reports, badges, etc - the current aim is to have a beta version by March 2018. The app is running a first version which is very old (10 years old code base and design) but the new version is meant to run as a subscription-based service/software.
Starting 2017 I started to volunteer as time allows me with the great team from Code4Romania helping in various projects they have. Check on their projects to see how they help Romania develop and please consider a donation if you want to help these moving on https://code4.ro/en/donate/
🚀🔥❤⚡ They are really doing a great great job!
As time permits I also do freelancing on small/medium size projects - preferably backend/server-side tasks.
During the past 10-12 years, I have started several blogs, at the very early stage of blogging in Romania, dropped in several times because writing is not really me. But, the aim of my posts here is to share my findings, from my work, sharing solutions that I have found for problems that I got into. Many might be outdated but new to me but that way practicing writing helps improving it and helps me find the solution to a problem easier next time.

Two quotes that I find inspiring for all the stuff you are doing/working on in this life, about doing the stuff you do with passion and fighting difficulties - both from Maya Angelou
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
