About

Hello there!

I’m Vlad, a software engineer residing in Toronto, Canada. I love building stuff for the web and mobile devices. The world of computers and technology fascinates me and I can spend hours talking about it.

Besides all the computer stuff, I enjoy playing tennis, biking, and running – but here’s more about me on the technical side of things:

Technologies of Choice

HTML5 & CSS3

JavaScript

Python

GIT

Android

jQuery

node.js

SASS

Ember JS

AngularJS

Web Development

I began my web development journey years ago with static HTML pages, building fancy<table> layouts. When better web technologies arrived, I started exploring the world of PHP and JavaScript. These days, I do a lot of front-end development with CSS & JavaScript, backed by different client & server-side web frameworks.

One of my favourite web frameworks is jQuery. I appreciate what jQuery & jQuery Mobile do for the web and am very happy to be part of the jQuery community. I try to promote open standards, such as HTML5, as much as possible. I also contribute to the Mozilla Developer Network and other tools that help shape the open web.

Currently Exploring & Researching

Rust

WebGL

Meteor

Mobile Development

A lot of innovation is happening in the mobile field these days. I enjoy researching new mobile technologies and closely follow the development of mobile browsers. Lately I’ve been playing around with NFC and location-based services for mobile.

I’m a great enthusiast of the Google Android platform. I think it’s a great achievement to have a modern open-source operating system available for handheld devices and that anyone has an opportunity to create their own hardware and put Android on it!

Web & Application Design

Besides building software components, I like to design and visualize whole applications. I find the user interface development process very exciting, either building something from scratch or finding new ways to improve an existing project.

I’ve had experience in developing responsive and functional interfaces for multiple projects. I love researching and discovering new user experience patterns to create unique ways of communicating to the user.
