I'm an Android developer with over 10 years of experience. I've been working as a single developer, in small outsource studios and big products with thousands of them.

Personal impact on products I work on is the thing I like the most. So it's evolved to be my main field of interest: make my and teammates' everyday work easier and more productive. I like automation, CI/CD, Gradle, I care about the build speed and scalability of apps I build. Architectural point of view is the thing that makes me stand out, though I still understand where it's possible to cut the corners and make the business move as fast as possible.

Right now I feel most comfortable working with Kotlin, RxJava (or Coroutines), Dagger, OkHttp, Retrofit, Jetpack MVVM (UDF).

More apart I always keep an eye on the latest Android development trends such as Kotlin Multiplatform or Jetpack Compose, trying them out on my pet projects and looking forward to use them in production.
