Senior Big Data Engineer at Grid Dynamics. I like working remotely and impacting results.
In 2017, I worked in an engineering lab where I calculated and visualized results using WolframAlpha. It interested me and I thought that I could grow and develop in this field.
Moreover, there was nothing to eat (salaries in Russia are quite low), and I wanted to earn money in the insurance industry.
At university, I had accumulated a lot of experience writing scientific articles, so when I started developing in the field of programming, I thought that I could transfer those skills to writing articles on programming
My earliest memory is trying to write problems in Pascal faster, so I could spend more time on Counter-strike.
Ground connection technology: everyone needs to keep in touch with their family and friends in order to feel comfortable.
Python because almost everything can be done in this language. Yes, perhaps some tasks in other languages work better and faster, but for my tasks, it is usually more than enough.
Write documentation: I think it's obvious to everyone.
Using a manual ad hoc, when automation is possible—so 18th century.
Clouds (the technology not the fluffy ones); until now, I had never had the opportunity to use them at work.
I will choose to travel to the future, technology in 10 years will be about the same. The new iPhone 24 will be released, which will have 10 cameras on the back :)
