In a Nutshell
I am an entirely self-taught passionate programmer, team leader, sysadmin, designer, researcher, C1 speaker and amateur translator.
In IT since 2002 (online ªsince 2004; ªcode). System administrator since 2006 (before that – self-hosted FreeBSD boxes). Freelance developer and hacker since 2009. UI designer since 2010. ªAmong the first Laravel adopters in Runet (+ ªcore commits in 2012).
Do most coding in G/Vim and Notepad 2e (maintainer since 2013). Prefer Git (used Subversion until 2012), Mantis, GitHub and e-mail. Used to intensively work with Trello.
Have written technical docs (for my projects and of others), articles (first posted ªin 2006), tutorials, specs, translated that too, localized ªanime and games – typed 1000+ A4 pages of natural language texts. Reviewed some books for Packt Publishing.
