2008-present Teaching assistant (Computer Modeling and Information 
Technologies Department, KSTUCA).
2006-2008 Engineer (Computer Modeling and Information Technologies Department, KSTUCA).
2005-present Experience of work as ISP and technical support (about 40 hosts).


- GSOC: IDFetch project
- Organized and carried out (including mentoring) student conference “Free and
 Open Source Software, 2009” at KSTUCA ( (Applied to 
the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine to make this conference 
All-Ukrainian for the next 2010/2011 education year);
- Co-organizer of the section “Wonders of Information Technologies” of the 
66th student conference at KSTUCA;

- Deployed proxy-servers in a few small (up-to 50 computers) companies and 

Near future projects:

- Deployment of the wifi-zones with development of information resources at 
- Development of a download manager with gui, because don't find existing 
programs and front-ends for wget sufficiently robust and feature-full.
