About me

Hello! My name is Alexander. I’m a full-stack web-developer from Russia.

I am highly motivated specialist in PHP 7/5.6 and Javascript programming. I prefer to use modern trends and technologies for building high-quality web-apps. My preference is back-end in PHP but front-end does not frighten me. Moreover I am interested in building large-scale client-based applications. About 5 years of experience in building different web applications as for backend and for frontend. I mostly work in enterprise sphere but had some freelance experience and personal side-projects.



For the server-side I am using LAMP or/with Nginx and php-fpm I'm using MySQL and Redis for data storage. I can't write complicated SQL queries because i mostly work with ORM like Active Record, for example - Propel. I have experience with such frameworks as Yii, Yii2, Symfony2, Slim and others. I able to start using the new one very quickly.


I am very experienced with HTML and CSS. Also have experience of making HTML templates for emails. I am using SASS/Compass or LESS as CSS-preprocessors. I am able to create complex client-based apps using either VanillaJs or using frameworks (Angular, Backbone).

I have experience with following technologies:
  • PHP, MySQL, Apache, Nginx
  • Yii, Yii2, Symfony2, Silex, Slim, Active Record, Propel ORM
  • Composer, Capistrano, Memcached, Gearman
  • REST, Soap
  • Javascript, JQuery, JQueryUI, AngularJS, BackboneJS, CoffeeScript
  • HTML, CSS, (HTML5, CSS3), SCSS (Compass), LESS, Bootstrap, Handlebars, Twig, Canvas
  • GIT, SVN, Mercurial, GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, JIRA
  • Go, NodeJS, C# - newbie level
