About

Howdy! ^.^

Aleks here, @ your service!

I work as a software developer & test automation specialist and like any other "IT guy", I'm in a long-term relationship with my computer... yup ‐ still a better love story than Twilight... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I remember writing my 1st few lines of code in Pascal. It was something quite simple like printing out some profanity but it still blew my mind & I've been hooked ever since.

Nowadays I'm mostly into web development but I do keep my eye on all emerging technologies.

Feel free to browse my portfolio and check out what I've been working on lately.

TURN ONs:
coffee
playin' my Les Paul
cryptography
sk8boarding
street art
memes (no, not mimes ‐ those are scary AF)
ancient Rome
TURN OFFs:
bugs & code smells
peas (just kill me...)
making useless lists

Portfolio

After getting my bachelor's degree in computer science, I've been working on various DEV & QA projects.

It kicked off with web development, more precisely, I started as a full-stack PHPdeveloper. This involved using several frameworks like Laravel, Yii2 & Symfony. It gave me a solid knowledge of MVC architecture, both front & back-end programming, unit testing & dependency management.

Being part of a team also required to get familiar with version control systems like Git & Subversion as well as CI/CD tools like Jenkins and CLI scripting.

Down the road I also became ISTQB certified tester and began test automation for some large-scale projects for Mercedes Benz & Commerzbank. Beside explorative & functional testing, it also required a great deal of flexibility like programming custom browser extensions, learning XPath, Jython, Groovy etc.

Fast paced development of mobile apps provided me with the opportunity to grasp the basic concepts of Android platform and even publish my own app Latinica ⇄ Ћирилица ‐ a highly customizable Cyrillic-Latin converter thoroughly tested with Espresso.

As an open-source software advocate, I'm contributing to community-driven projects whenever I can, also donating my spare computing power to medical, environmental and other humanitarian research conducted by World Community Grid.

Nowadays, I'm trying to deepen my knowledge of Node.js runtime and beef up my JavaScript/TypeScript kung fu. As a dominant language of the Web, I find it perfect for development & test automation of modern single-page applications.
