Gabi Purcaru developer

I've started my software engineering career quickly jumping from small oddball projects to medium-sized ones, and then a larger project where I've created most of the Cinely website, both back and front end, learning about Django, jQuery and MySQL in the process. Then I've moved on to interning at Facebook for my first time, where I've prototyped changing Facebook's massive data bus' underlying filesystem to GlusterFS. After that I've joined 2Performant, where I've helped create the next version of the affiliate network, particularly the front-end, using AngularJS. Afterwards I went back for my second internship at Facebook, where I've improved LiveRail's performance monitoring.

Most of this while studying for my BSc. at the University of Bucharest, maintaining my own open source project, and working on other small side projects.
