I’m Victor, from Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and I’m a developer, sysadmin and free software enthusiast.
I recently joined OKI as part of the OpenTrials team and I’m currently working on node.js issues we have open regarding the website and API, then probably moving towards the python/data side of things.
Previously I worked in compliance technology, doing transaction monitoring (python and php for the curious) for banks and other financial institutions as a day job, while having a handful of projects on the side. Probably the most notable one (still ongoing) is Elvis, where we take all the public procurements actors and place them in interactive networks so the spending patterns come out of their hiding. Why we do this? Because it’s our money they’re spending
Other than that, I’m a long time advocate for freedom of technology and information, been working with FSF/FSFE on various campaigns and served as the CTO & CEO of Fundația Ceata (sorry, website in Romanian). In Romania I had a few activities around open data, organising hackathons, working a bit with government officials to push forward the OGP platform and some other things I forgot.
Anyway, that’s too much of an introduction already, so I might reuse it for the profile here
P.S.: Big kudos for whoever proposed and set up Discourse, it’s a platform one can only
