JOB EXPERIENCE:

TomTom (http://www.tomtom.com)

June 2011 - present

 

Major contribution in porting existing iPhone application to iPad. Existed code base didn’t support tablet logic (for instance, it was not possible to show two maps at a time), so I had to fix that.

Developed social media integration (Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter).

 

The most challenging part for me was a huge existing code base in C++, which I had to maintain.

 

Technologies used: Objective-C.

Unreal Mojo (http://www.unrealmojo.com)

March 2011 – June 2011

 

ТНТ (TNT) is a Russian entertainment TV network, which mainly broadcasts TV series. Developed an app which allowed users to buy and watch episodes of TV series.

 

In this project the most challenging part was to create a cowerflow-like control for iPhone version.

 

Technologies used: Objective-C, Store Kit.

 

 

SperaSoft (http://www.sperasoft.com)

September 2005 – March 2011

 

Money iQ is a personal finance software for iPhone that allows to generate nice-looking reports based on users day-to-day expenses/incomes input. It also has budgeting functionality, which helps user to plan how much money he would like to spend on a certain period for some category or account. There are a lot of different features, so you may test it - Money iQ lite is free for download.

 

I worked as a lead developer on this project. Started it from scratch. Designed application architecture and database.

 

Technologies used: Objective-C, SQLite.

 

 

Spark is an opensource framework that allows user to run javascript applications on different mobile platforms (Symbian, WindowsMobile, Android). Ideology is quite close to J2ME, but language for applications developers is javascript.

 

·       Developed various javascript applications, based on Spark technology. All communications with server were handled asynchronously, using AJAX technology.

 

·       Took part in Symbian port development. Ported it to UIQ.

 

·       Developed from scratch WindowsMobile port of Spark.

 

·       Helped with Android port set up and development.

 

·       Developed from scratch Javadoc-like documentation generation tool for javascript code, based on regular expressions.

 

·       Developed Java-based simulator frontend (for C++-based backend - it was written by a member of my team).

 

                        Technologies used: Java (J2SE), Regular Expressions, C++, JavaScript, AJAX, Ant.

 

 

Main challenge in this task, besides framework creation, was parallel running of created tests on different machines and browsers. I created an Ant script, which solved this task (remote ant was used to run ant script on a remote server).

 

                        Technologies used: Java, Selenium, Ant, Maven.

 

 

                        Technologies used: Objective-C

 

 

 

 

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE:

 

The main goal of this project was to understand all processes of application development, including iTunesConnect, localization and many other aspects. I tried to use as much unknown (for me) technologies as possible.

 

Even though this app looks quite simple, there were a lot of challenges. For instance, Smart Coin supports 19 languages, allows to change them “on the fly”, without restart of the application.

 

In order to support historical currency rates for different sources, I had to write a bot, which collected and stored currency rates in a database, and server API for application to get these rates in JSON format.

 

Technologies used: Objective-C, Store Kit, Push Notifications, Core Graphics, AFNetworking.

Server: node.js, mongoDB, MySQL, nginx.

 

 

It allows a developer to automate application metadata update for different localizations. I.e. uploading screenshots, changing description, keywords, etc.

 

During development of Smart Coin I realized that it takes enormous amount of time to upload localized screenshots to iTunesConnect (5 screenshots for iPhone, iPad and iPhone 5, 19 languages = 285 screenshots). I always wanted to write something useful in python, so that's how this project was born.

 

Technologies used: Python, HTTP proxy.

 

 

Technologies used: Objective-C, Core Graphics, Core Text.

 

This project was never released and is currently frozen.

 

Technologies used: Unity iPhone.

 

Divine Office is an application that allows user to download and play daily prayers.

 

Technologies used: Objective-C, Core Audio.
