Stefan Gabos web developer extraordinaire
Hello! I am Stefan Gabos, a 36 year old web developer working from Bucharest, Romania. I’m half Hungarian, stubborn, articulate, and slightly afraid of women.
I develop rock-solid PHP libraries and super-lightweight, highly optimized, bad-ass jQuery plugins and open-source them because I am a web developer even when I’m not at work. Everything is available on GitHub
I am into web site performance optimization (both server- and client-side) and I will burst into an evil laughter if you think image optimization stops at “Save for Web” in Photoshop.
I stay up to date with most of what’s happening in the web development scene.
When working, I listen to massive amounts of music – alternative rock, in general. When I am not working (it sometimes happens), I enjoy playing the guitar, sleeping, cooking, watching Formula One or a good movie.
I am currently head of developers at Kubis Interactive where I’m responsible, besides the usual chores of a web developer, for software architecture, team lead, technical guidance and support for a development team of 14. I also helped build the company from a 6-people start-up to the currently most successful web agency in Romania, with more than 60 employees.
