About Alex Crivat

I have always been looking to improve my knowledge in computer related fields so I have studied from hardware components to compiler design and formal grammars and found everything very interesting and absorbing which is why I was always motivated by learning.

The experience that I have gained in more than fifteen years covers two main areas of IT industry: development and system administration. This allowed me to switch my career many times between the two fields and made it easy for me to find solutions to problems related to one of the two domains by applying tools, algorithms or paradigms belonging to the other.

My favorite activity is spending time solving problems or issues that appear in any topic related to these two domains. Whether the problem comes from a deadlock between two threads (development) or from configuring a firewall or a routing table (administration), I love finding the optimal solution and I always challenge existing templates constantly looking for improvements and ways to simplify things.
