tabacitu We believe writing good code is not only about writing good code. It’s also about the words around it. We aims to deliver both: code and words.

Hey! I'm Tabacitu 👋

I build online products and help others do the same. I'm based in Bucharest (Romania), but work almost as much from cafes and coworking spaces around the world.

I think life is simple, we make it complicated. Same with web development. That's why I've been warning people against unnecessarily adopting some dev trends for the past 10 years. I've always seen microservices, SPAs, large JS frameworks as something only 1% of new apps should use, not 99% - most people didn't listen. I finally feel vindicated in 2024, seeing many people in this tiny little corner of the internet finally moving to monoliths, HTMX / Livewire, Alpine etc. Feels like the share of people who like to "keep it simple" is growing again. Can't wait for people to also see NPM as toxic (just like its founder does). Other than that, I'm a happy camper.

I love my stack and the people in it. We've got 90% of the things we need to quickly build & maintain web apps. I have some big ideas regarding the next 10%... just hope I get enough time to make them a reality.
