    Hello! I'm doing programming for more than 6 years. Deep and versatile experience in C# language as well as Unity development in which I'm enthusiastic expert for already more than 4 years. My another passion is Android and iOS development where I've build a number of successful applications as well. Creating stable, structured, and maintainable products for clients. This is what is crucial for project's evolving on technical level which I'm responsible for. It is very important paradigm which should be followed during all the development lifecycle. I think code quality must be on a priority list while delivering products to customers. This basic and simple idea always helps to focus on the main work achieving goals in a shorter terms which in the end helps to save customer's time and budget. I'm always trying to build an open business relationship at the very beginning of cooperation as it helps to create a stable contact and efficient partnership which in the end leads to better understanding of customer's needs and requirements allowing to achieve high performance.
