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, 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

What mentees say

Standard Plan ·

Fiodar is incredibly kowledgeable and skilled and I enjoyed the few conversations we had. Even though our mentorship was positive, I have the opportunity to get mentored by someone outside of Mentorcruise.

Fiodar has an innate ability to listen actively and provide thoughtful guidance. He challenged me to think critically, while also providing constructive feedback. He was always willing to share his insights and expertise. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a mentor who is committed, knowledgeable, and genuinely invested in the growth and development of their mentees.


5 out of 5 stars

Great knowledge transfer/practice as always! If you’re looking to level up as a software developer (junior to mid or mid to senior in C#/.NET) Fiodar is the person to go to, hands down. Looking forward to the next session soon and thanks again Fiodar!
