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).
Made web scrapers, grammar-based parsers, regexp- and AST-based text and HTML formatters, code interpreters, pure C and Delphi libraries, games. Versed in Windows internals and ªinfosec ªoverall. Reverse-engineered dozens of Visual Novels, drivers, compression algorithms, network protocols.
Do most coding in G/Vim and Notepad 2e (maintainer since 2013). Prefer Git (used Subversion until 2012), Mantis, Trello and e-mail.
Have written technical docs (for my projects and of others), articles (first posted ªin 2006), tutorials, specs, translated that too, localized anime and games – typed 750+ A4 pages of natural language texts. Reviewed some books for Packt Publishing.
