posts about software engineering craft



I am Alexandru Olaru, a software engineer from the Republic of Moldova with a solid 12 years of development experience. I am deeply committed to learn and grow continuously.

This blog is a way for me to share my knowledge. Learning and teaching, in my opinion, are different sides of the same coin.



  • I am a Vipassana practitioner. Attempt to meditate daily, morning and evening, this clears my mind and helps me to have a better understanding of what I am.
  • I enjoy most nature: woods, mountains, and fauna; they have always fascinated me.
  • Currently studying Rust, found a pleasing vibe around this language, hope will be able to combine node.js and Rust to create better, faster, applications.


I am a speaker at our local javascript meetup @JSMD, trying to share my experience and empower new generations as other seniors guys did when I started.

If you are interested in my work and find it useful for your community to know about it, then ping me, will gladly help.
