My Story

I am a curious software engineer based in Ukraine. My work is my passion. I am always interested in learning something new or improving my existing skills. Nowadays, technologies are constantly changing and evolving, so I try to keep pace with the times.

Building a software product is not hard with such number of frameworks and platforms, but building a reliable, extensible and robust application is not a trivial task. The key point here is a software architecture, most developers, unfortunately, don't pay enough attention to it. An application without a well-designed architecture is like a house without a foundation.

I always try to design an application architecture in the first place. I enjoy discussing different architectural approaches, finding alternatives and adapting an architecture for specific requirements. I think that software should be written in a way that you won't hate later, especially when adding new features.

I am not trying to maximize the number of projects done, but the number of well-done projects instead.

When I'm not working, I enjoy doing a vast array of healthy outdoor activities, but I am particularly keen on working out. I also enjoy writing. I've found sharing my experiences in this blog to be both rewarding and educational, so feel free to visit it. I hope you can find something useful there.
