⭐About me

Hello World,

  • I do software professionally starting from 2003. Please see my resume.
  • I came from Microsoft world, but I'm diving deeper and deeper into the world of opensource and I it.
  • As a Full Stack Engineer and I like pushing my skills in all directions: front end, back end and databases. Though I have a bit more passion for the front end.
  • I prefer to work on web apps (ideally high traffic and distributed), but I did a lot of desktop apps (WPF, WinForms). my strongest tech skills right now are HTML, Javascript, Typescipt, React, .NET C#, ASP.NET MVC, SQL, but I'd love to master something new, like GoLang, C++, Java, Python, Mobile apps etc...
