Maxim has developed "everything" for more than 10 years, starting from C/C++ and geophysics. Now — mostly JVM languages, a little JS and financial services. Mainly, he uses Spring ecosystem in development, but sometimes needs alternatives, so tries anything he finds good on GitHub. Wants to understand how applications work all the way from start to finish, so is interested in architecture, infrastructure, and deployment and support processes. Very appreciative of DevOps as a methodology.
