Hey Hackers! I’m Yan Tsishko and I’m the Chief Software Engineer at Oxagile.
First of all, a huge thank you to the HackerNoon community and staff for nominating me for a 2021 Noonies award! I’ve been nominated in the following categories, please do check out these award pages and vote:
Currently, I’m a Chief Software Engineer and manage 25 JS developers.
Another part of my work is engineering. I like to take part in projects with challenges, especially for the Smart TV platform, because we have limited resources (memory, CPU) and we should implement a solution that can work fast on these devices.
I have had an opportunity to try ML in browsers on mobile devices and I shared my investigation and implementation in the articles How We Implemented Face and Mask Recognition in Google Chrome.
I like to share my experience in articles, meetups and conferences.
If we speak about public contributions, I can say that I have a repository on GitHub with an example of how to create SSR for React.js with Express.js. When I started to implement this feature Next.js was not production-ready for our project (which was in production at that moment) and I researched how to do it manually. The results of best practices from the internet are presented in my repository. Also, you can find out how to blur objects in real-time on video with code examples. How to use ML in browser for face and mask detection.
I became interested in programming at the age of 14 and independently studied new things for myself. Then I graduated from a technical university and started my first job at a startup remotely with no strong skills in any programming language. I studied HTML, CSS, PHP and created several web applications at school and university and had the chance to improve my knowledge. I had a lot of challenges, and every day I had to learn something new.
When I started to share my experience and improve my soft skills, my current company noticed this and offered me a promotion to Chief Software Engineer.
This is the result of many years of experience and self-improvement.
The best investment is investing in yourself. Your education.
Currently, I am diving deeper into the performance of applications and project architecture. I have been given the opportunity to test optimization hypotheses on a real project for SmartTV.
Google knows almost all, try googling for 30 minutes and then ask your colleague for help. 😃
When you search for answers, you read different points of view and practices. In case you can’t find an answer, at least you read a lot of information around this theme.
If you have a goal, you can reach it.
