Let’s start with the beginning – my parents named me Filip Iulian Pacurar on 21th of July, 1993. I liked it so much that I still use this name nowadays. I’m 30 years old. I am married with the girl that changed my whole life – Catalina. We married on 6th of September, 2015.
From 6th of January 2017 I’ve became a father. First a father for Joshua. He is the smartest, happiest and energetic kid I know 😂. He is now 6 years old.
Then another little one came into this world on 4th of March 2019 – Caleb. He is 4 years old now when writing this. He was the first buddy to Joshua until….
… Until 14th of March 2023 when God blessed our family with Noah, our 3rd boy. We are currently not sure with whom he resembles the most, 70% with Iosua and 30% with Caleb.
Since I’ve graduated high school I am a full time programmer. I’ve started working for a startup company named Web Efficient back in 2012. That company is now called Redouble. I’ve worked at this company for more than 5 years and in this period I learned a lot of things and grown big time. I even became the CTO in 2016. Wrote a lot of code and managed projects.
In the year 2018 I decided to do a big change. I left the company after more that 5 years and decided to be a freelancer and work from home. I work mostly for a company from Toronto, Canda called Meevo. I can also work on other projects too if I need to. Working in a company did not give me this option. But now I am free.
I am a christian and I believe that in everything I do i must glorify God. This is the cornerstone of my whole life.
I love having a blog. I started this blog (but the romanian content) in 2008. So what’s it like, 13 years right? I write mostly for me, not for other people. I like having a journal that I can read in the future and smile. I wrote on the blog when I got engaged, I wrote when I had bad days and memories. This is practically my journal. I like to own the content I make because Facebook might not exist when I am 65.
I am an enthusiast programmer and I like everything around programming in general, servers and geek things. The server this blog is on is configured by me. I never chose the easy path to host this blog (things like free hostings). I always say that my content should belong to me 100%. That’s why I never moved this blog to Medium. I like doing weird things with my blog, unusual themes and the only way to do that is through my own hosting and code.
