My name is Andrei N. Ciobanu; I live in Bucharest, Romania. I am happily married and the father of a sweet baby girl.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Electronics, Telecommunications, and Information Technology from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest (2009).

I’ve started programming as a kid, in BASIC. My first microcomputer was one of those. All the lucky Romanian kids from 90s had them:

I consider myself primarily a Java/Kotlin guy, but I have a soft spot for C. I can also speak python and have basic conversations in C++ (although the natives accuse me of having a thick foreign accent).

I keep my technical skills sharp by doing coding exercises, contributing to open-source software, and reinventing the wheel. My most popular project is www.mockneat.com.

Outside of programming (and science subjects), I always had a great interest in music, chess and travelling. Unfortunately I cannot play any musical instrument, I am a patzer, and I haven’t travelled much in recent years. The later might change in the future, but I am not so sure about the other two.

Romanian is my native language, and I am also fluent in English and French.

The blog

I usually blog about my interests: C/Java/Kotlin, Mathematics, Computer Science curricula (algorithms and data structures). Rarely I touch other subjects.

The blog source code/content is hosted on github/nomemory/andreinc-site. The code in the articles is not always tested (as it should). If you see any issues with it, please open a PR, and I will make sure I will merge it.

The blog is powered by jekyll, minimal-mistakes and netlify. The comments system is based on utterances.

I create the “visuals” with draw.io.

I use mathjax for math formulas.
