Alexander Timofeev

Rails and Ruby developer, Front-end architect

Technical skills

Completed my first project on the second branch of Rails, and since then have been desperately in love with RoR. I know the framework ecosystem and best practices inside out. I know and am skilled at using all popular (and not so popular) gems for various tasks, moreover, I have been a contributor to some of them. I have created dozens of millions applications from the ground up, some of them are used in production :). I have used MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB databases and Thin, Unicorn and Puma application servers in my projects. I have a good understanding of RSpec and TDD approach. I like git and deploy via Capistrano.
