Codrut Neagu

I enjoy the complexities of technology and the simplicity of nature. Throughout my career in IT, I’ve embraced a variety of roles and navigated through diverse professional landscapes. Now, my days are spent exploring the inner aspects of Windows and Android, seeking to gain a better understanding of how they operate… knowledge that I aim to share through writing tutorials, reviews, and personal opinion pieces. I also code, although not as often as I did in the past. However, I still take on projects for WordPress sites occasionally, aiming to transpose creative designs into functional code. Besides work, I’m a PC gamer passionate about first-person shooters and role-playing games. Away from the keyboard, I love spending time in the great outdoors, cycling or trekking along gravel paths and up mountainsides with my family.
