I am an experienced lead software engineer whose main area of expertise is Microsoft stack, which includes ASP.NET (Framework and Core), SQL Server, Azure, and various front-end technologies. I am familiar with industry-wide best practices, such as SOLID principles, software design patterns, automation testing principles (BDD and TDD) and microservices architecture.

I've built my software engineering experience while working in a variety of industries, including water engineering, financial, retail, railway and defence. I have also played a leading role in various projects and, as well as writing software, gained substantial experience in architecture and design.

I regularly write about software development on my personal website, scientificprogrammer.net. I have also authored a number of online courses and the following technical books:

- The easiest way to learn design patterns
- SignalR on .NET 6 - the complete guide
- Microservices communication in .NET using gRPC

As a mentor, I specialize in the following areas:

- Anything related to .NET, especially ASP.NET Core
- How to start programming
- Strategies of getting your first job as a software developer
- Building the right programming habits
- Principles of clean code
- Best practices of software development
- Building a personal brand and using it in the job market

What mentees say



5 out of 5 stars

Apart from being an expert, Fiodar is a very pleasant person to work with and someone who sees the larger picture, which is extremely important and helpful when you're not 100% sure what kind of mentorship you need. After an initial video call and a couple of messages, he already created a learning path outline which absolutely meets all the requirements I defined and most importantly some which I wasn't aware of. A fantastic mentor!



5 out of 5 stars

Fiodar is a great mentor, very resourceful. I expected a few advices about the technology I was learning and I ended up rethinking my carrier strategy. I recommend working with him!
