Remus learned programming from a very early age, on a ZX Spectrum clone in post-communist Romania. He later learned web development by downloading documentation offline because access to the internet was scarce. More than twenty years later, he enjoys not having to deal with cross-browser issues, loves that browsers have tabs and access to high-speed internet on demand.
Having worked closely with the Adobe AIR, Flash and Flex teams more than ten years ago, he’s had an early glimpse into the future that could be. Today, he thinks TypeScript + React is way better than ActionScript + Flex and it’s an exciting time to be developing on the web.
He is currently working on developer tooling at SEEK and on Braid, SEEK’s design system. He’s also an active open source contributor on projects such as Vanilla Extract, Webpack, Vite, various Rollup plugins, and many others.
