Interview with Robert Tingirică

Cloud developer Consultant

Please, tell a bit about the work you do. How did you first get involved into this work?

I am a Cloud Developer. I started doing cloud work at a company integrating Microsoft tech into Openstack.

What is the most challenging part of your work, and what is the most rewarding one?

My biggest challenge is getting Enterprise companies to do a mental shift. It is hard for mentalities to change and to migrate to a more cloud native way of thinking.
I get the most satisfaction when teaching other people new methodologies and when I am solving problems.

Do you have any advice for someone interested in pursuing the same career?

Work hard and get involved with the community. That’s how you’ll learn the most.

Can you give us a sneak peek into your GDG DevFest Romania talk? Why did you choose this subject?

My talk focuses on how I am trying to solve the problem of MFA when interacting with the Kubernetes API. My day to day work revolves around Kubernetes. My customers want more ideas on how to improve security. This is me trying to do so.

In your opinion, what are the benefits of attending events like GDG DevFest Romania?

Meeting smart people and learning from them. There are usually all sorts of people from all over. Diversity gives us perspective and I find it invaluable.
