I was born in Kaluga, Russia and graduated with a diploma in applied mathematics and physics from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. I became interested in Java since the first university years of the university. Worked for several companies in Moscow, developing CRM systems for a large telecommunication company and creating Hadoop-based ETL processes for an international bank. In 2015 I took part in the GSOC program and became a fan of open source, contributing to JBoss Tools and Eclipse JSDT. Now i'm working for Red Hat on JBoss Tools plugins for Openshift and Hibernate.
