Virgil Palanciuc

Senior Software Engineer Adobe Systems

Software engineer, interested in everything-computer-science. I have been working on all sorts of stuff .. from being part of a team that designed a digital signal processor to working compilers, virtual machines (JIT optimisation) & assembly programming, to high-level & web programming in Javascript, VB.NET/C#, Python to distributed computing using Scala & Spark. I worked on “startup”-like projects both in a small company & inside a corporation (I’m one of Adobe’s “blue box” recipients, see I used to teach compilers at Politehnica University too, but it was taking too much time and I was getting sloppy at it, so I handed over that baton to someone else.
Recently I’m especially interested in data science, machine learning, balancing personalisation with privacy, and the impact of computers & technology on our society.
