My name is Sasha Shpota. I am a programmer. I write mostly in Java, but also in TypeScript and Python. At the moment, I work as a full-stack developer. In my day to day work, I implement back end functionality with Java and Spring Boot, front end with Angular and deliver the applications using Docker and Kubernetes. I am a regular contributor to StackOverflow.

I am a big fan of the DevOps culture and I believe that a modern developer must manage the full application cycle from designing the application to delivering it to end-users. I also think that automation is the best way to make programmers’ lives easier.

In my spare time, I like reading books, going to the gym, traveling and enjoying free time with my family. Of course, I code from time to time. In the meantime I like exploring new cultures and new languages - I am learning German at the moment and I can’t wait until I am able to communicate freely with native speakers.

On this blog, I share my thoughts about software development.
