Hello, my name is Vladislav Faust.
I am a jack of anything IT, master of some; see my CV.
Throughout my 10+ years of experience in Information Technology, I've tried everything from compiling COFF after LLVM lowering to designing a resilient ultra-scalable fleet of FAAS workers. Anything from Substrate and IPFS to event-driven stock price prediction.
Once a technology is understood by me, it becomes boring. It is like surfing on the waves of technology trends, on the surface of the greatest whirlpool of singularity. By understanding I mean not entirely known, e.g. all quirks of the hell-born Rust code, no. Understanding means fundamental, decomposed knowledge enough to build a solution at any scale.
For me, it is not about thoroughly learning API of yet another web framework, it is instead getting hands on the set of tooling a technology offers, so that I may choose the best framework suitable for the problem. If I were to compile my 10+ years of experience into one line, that would be the following:Right tooling is paramount.
In the very end what I really want is to exercise human love at its fullness. No technology brings me closer to that desire. My extra-wide experience does, though. I am currently looking for a lesser-code job, such as team leading, facilitation, architecture design etc., with almost any stack. Still, I'm okay with coding if needed.
