About the Author

Bogdan Crudu
Bogdan Crudu

It could be said about Bogdan that he has “received” an unconventional classical education which

has only ever been fueled by his endless curiosity in how things work and how people function.

His background is in languages and laws but his professional career has been marked by a diverse

set of responsibilities in all things tech, ranging from working as a full stack engineer on

international law parsers and interpreters to core functionality, pipeline setup and configuration

for a worldwide digital cinema package distributor to technical writing for fintech and blockchain


As diverse as his background might seem at first glance, the written word - either code or

documents - has always been the center point in his entire career, and also his greatest asset.

When Baron Lytton said that “The pen is mightier than the sword.” he understood the global power of

reach the written word has. And in our day and age dominated by technology, a few lines written in

a clear and profound manner can shape all of our futures combined.
