A bit more about me
My name is Dmytro Yurchenko. I love programming, reading sci-fi and fantasy books, playing video games and chess, practicing wushu and very interested in exploring new knowledge and experience. We are all here to make difference and make world a better place by improving technology and society.
I don't limit my skills development only with tools, but also I read much about methodologies, best practices and different tricks. One of my favourite books is Steve McConnell's "Code Complete", and the other book I like much is Grady Booch's "Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with Applications". Good books provide valuable ideas and insights that hard to see during every day work.
Programming languages with which I have most experience are PHP (started to use it in 2009 year) and C++ (since 2008). I believe that tools of trade are not as important as ideas, design and approaches. What you should do to successfully complete project is to choose right tool: not the one you know the best, but the one which suits project's requirements the best. Ideally you should know every and each tool in the area of your interest. I am highly interested in cloud computing, big data, machine learning, parallel computing and development of scalable web applications. Most time so far I worked professionally in web development and machine learning areas.
