Software Engineer

Short bio

I've been doing backend(and sometimes fullstack) development since 2014, using Scala, Clojure, TypeScript/Node.JS, PHP, Postgres, Kafka, RabbitMQ, GRPC/Protobuf and other technologies.

I am in a happy marriage.

I fell in love with pragmatic functional programming since talk "Simple made Easy" by R. Hicky

Experienced with development of distributed and asynchronous systems.

My favorite programming languages are Scala, Rust, Typescript and Clojure. They're modern, powerful and provides different aproaches and points of view for solving problems. I'm open for every new experience in software development.

I have pet projects linked with retrocomputers. Like networking for ZX Spectrum-compatible computers(including Spectrum Next), retro demoscene and community activity.


North-Caucasus Federal University, honours degree in information systems and technologies.
