    Evgeniy G.

    Systems Programmer

    Russia - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 5

    Low level programming is what I enjoy the most. It includes, but not limited to, working with languages and platforms such as C/C++, Go, C#, F#. Being able to stay close to hardware, be it programming GPU via graphics API such as OpenGL, simply designing a cache-friendly algorithm or breaking throughput limits via hand-written SSE code is what makes my heart beat faster. Severly interested in game development, tools and user interface programming. By no means my passion is limited to these things. I've done a number of open source projects in past, which is the majority of my experience with programming and software support. You can see all of it on my github account: And some of these projects are listed in my portfolio.
