Hey! If you follow the DEV repository news closely, you may have noticed that I've been a part of the DEV team for a while now
Finally, it's time to introduce myself!
I'm a software developer from Northwest Russia, and I've been working in the industry for a decent amount of time already (since 2007).
I started as a full stack developer (php backend) but switched to Ruby a couple of years later (I love Ruby 💗).
At DEV I'm mostly focusing on refactoring, optimizations and overall code quality, however, I work on other things too.
It's a great experience to work on the opensource project fulltime. I would like to help others to contribute to the DEV codebase too. For now, you can join me on my ActiveJob campaign if you're interested.
I'm passionate about lifelong learning, programming and helping others to learn and grow. I'm also interested in writing and sharing my knowledge which I plan to do more of right here on DEV.
Being a part of the DEV team aligns well with my values and helps me to achieve my goals. I hope to bring value back to the community.
P.S. I have opened my DEV inbox, and I'm available for a quick chat on the dev topics.
