About me

Hi there, I am Alex 👋

Who am I?
I am a remote-first, self-taught Full-Stack Software Developer, learner, and teacher.

What I do?
I build web systems, write, teach, and consult.

What do I believe in?
I am a strong believer in self-education 📖 - which is something I do continually, and remote work 🌎 - which I think is the best working environment. I also believe that a machine is much more scalable than the human mind. That is why when I develop I prefer writing humanly scalable, fast enough solutions rather than super optimized one, which is really hard to understand (even for the future myself).

What I am good at?
Building complex web systems from start to finish. Moving from setting up a highly available and secure cloud infrastructure, DB data modeling, and implementing application back-end business logic, CI/CD setup to front-end solutions and everything in between.

What I am bad at?
Work on solutions for non clearly defined problems.

How I approach any problem?
I formulate a problem, define input and output. Then I make it work, make it clean, make it fast enough.

What is the clean code?
Clean code is simple and direct and it reads like well-written prose. When you read a clean code, you feel that the author cared about the reader.

How I approach code optimization?
I start by recalling this: Premature optimization is the root of all evil
And then I implement the optimal solution applying the Pareto's law

How can I help you?
If you need to build a web-based project, I can definitely help you with it.
If you want to consult on any tech-related question, I am also here to help you. More details on the Services page.
