Dima Knivets

Software Consultant


Vinnytsia, Ukraine


At the moment, I work mostly with a Ruby on Rails stack: both frontend and backend. I have a deep understanding of how the whole ecosystem works together, so I can deliver not only the application, but also a whole infrastructure for it: starting from a fresh server, configuring the environment, deploying the application and configuring continuous integration. I can also join the projects that are already in production and maintain or improve the existing codebase. Previously, I was also doing a lot of frontend stuff using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. A bit later I was working with more complex ... morefrontends using JavaScript frameworks like Angular.js and React. I also know node.js well, but I don’t have as much experience with it as I have with Rails. But still I can easily create apps using these technologies and setup both development (with building tools like Gulp/Grunt, preprocessors like SASS/LESS, uglifiers and code checkers) and production environments. Before frontend I was working mainly with WordPress and PHP world (Yii, Symfony, Drupal, modx, etc). When I’m not working for someone else I’m learning, polishing or practicing stuff like internet protocols, compilers and low level stuff, data structures and algorithms, distributed systems and parallel programming. Right now I’m finishing to learn Scala and Haskell. My next goal is data science (machine learning, deep learning and data mining), so I’m boosting my math skills in my free time. less

    Wordpress custom Login & Registration Page
    It was a big gamble for me to take on this project and before the project I had my concerns. however it quickly became evident that Dima was extremely knowledgable and competent. This made me feel more comfortable in the fact I could rely on Dima to do the job and do it well. He was willing to work through a lot of hurdles and stuck with the job. Kudos to Dima for that and have no hesitation in recommending him.
