Hello there.

My name is Alexander Pushkov and I write code (primarily Python or JavaScript).

Some links: GitLab, GitHub (older OSS stuff), Telegram, E-mail (PGP).

Some buzzwords: started as Python developer, currently working as Frontend / full-stack developer. 4 years experience in development and maintenance of systems and application software. More than 2 years of user interface and web development. Curious about new approaches and modern technologies. Wide experience across a lot of industries, from health and commerce to adtech and gaming.

I use and love:

I have worked at:
