Demo

Most of my work belongs to my employers.
There are however three exceptions:

  1. Kata 形 is my recent toy project to show of my skills in algorithms and idiomatic Go.
  2. osin-dynamodb is a Go library which implements the storage for OSIN with Amazon DynamoDB using aws-sdk-go. I’ve created it for storing OAuth credentials in DynamoDB in one of my projects at Uniplaces.
  3. ninja-mutex Total Downloadsis a simple to use mutex implementation for php. It supports different adapters (flock, memcache, mysql, redis, …) so you can set it up as you wish. All adapters (if set up properly) can be used in multi server environment - in other words lock is shared between web servers. I’ve created it as a demo of my skills, a demo I could show on job interviews.

All those projects show some of my skills, coding standards and love for testing.

What can you offer me?

  • steady income (to eat, pay rent, read books, support my photography and other hobbies)
  • opportunity to learn new programming language
  • opportunity to work and exchange knowledge with a team of specialists
  • opportunity to share knowledge via blogs and talks

  • office space
  • opportunities to travel

Senior Software Developer

Uniplaces

Thanks to gomobile I’ve built SDK application for Android and iOS

  • common application layer for Android and iOS mobile apps
  • simplified development as common logic could be encapsulated in library that Android and iOS developers can use in their apps
  • gomobile allows building fully native apps, but writing just a common library gives Android and iOS developers free hand at designing native frontend part of their app

Soon, I was able to notice that he had a deep knowledge of the most relevant technologies that simply make things work as they should.
