Hi! First of all, I would like to thank you for inviting me to speak at React Advanced. I have been working as a web developer for 14 years. I started working as a desktop developer about 15 years ago when I was still at the university, and shortly after, I have switched to web development. At that time, the web just began to look as “the right way to go” for enterprises. And I was passionate about building large enterprise web apps.
Can you, please briefly describe your previous work experience culminating in your current position?
I developed several UI components for a company from Germany while working remotely from my home town. After that, they have asked me to move to Munich and work for them full time.
I am working with Sencha customers, present Sencha’s products, run demos, trainings, workshops, webinars, develop POC and sample applications, make video courses, everything that customers might need to successfully learn and use our libraries. On the other hand, I collect customer’s requirements, suggestions, ideas and forward them to product managers and engineering teams.
What’s your favorite technology stack and why? What has been your biggest challenge with React so far?
React is definitely my second favorite library after Ext JS :) When React team has introduced Fiber, that was the biggest challenge for us because we needed to completely re-write the core of ExtReact - our component library for React.
I have never thought about this. But when I just started working as a software developer I liked to read books from Martin Fowler.
Write a clean code :)
Yes, I like rock climbing, hiking, snowboarding, and sailing.
Are you excited about the upcoming conference in London? What are you going to talk about and what are your expectations from the event?
Sure, I am going to talk about “Visual feature engineering for Machine Learning with React”. I think it will be an awesome opportunity to meet a lot of passionate developers.
