About

I'm Yevheniy
(aka Eugene... )

Jack of all trades, master of some, it's what I would describe of myself, because of the tech stacks that I enjoy working with.
I like to create User eXperiences(UX) & User Interfaces(UI) because I like the idea of thoughtful&practical design and execution because it makes the use of something more enjoyable, which is a key factor nowadays if you want to offer convenience to the final user/client.
On the other side I like also to deal with the back-end as it enables the service/product in the first place and provides the final usefulness(and revenue) of any business.

Surprised pikachu

I've been on computers from my teenager years, started as a gamer, ended up doing a bit of anything on the computer, even breaking and repairing it, all for sake of curiosity I guess 🤔.

Went to a high school that I regretted later on(construction technician) and after the struggle I went to the university of Information Technology, twice...
At the first the engagement didn't went almost anywhere, because the courses weren't well structured, cohesive and meaningful(IMO).
And after 1 year I went to the second best university nearby home, and I remained at it up to 2019, then dropped because it's not meaningful for me, right now, to continue it.

At the university I figured out that, as an academic student, I'm really slow, like I can't even study well multiple subjects at the same time, so my approach is of 1 subject at a time(which sucks/doesn't suite well the uni system).

But, meanwhile pursuing the studies, I wanted to start to gain job experience early as well, for the sake of trying and seeing the work environment first hand.
And that's how I stick with it™, because I found myself really profficient and fast learner, which I enjoyed more than university.
On the other side I don't disdain my university time either, because without it, I wouldn't have the knowledge building blocks that will let me, later on, understand complex arguments easier, and make my life easier overall.

Nowadays I continue with my software engineer career, I'll get back to university later on.

Projects
Professional
CasaCosy.es Work

CasaCosy.es

It was kind of my first professional project for an acquaintance. He is a business owner, in the renting/selling industry of apartments, in Spain. The previous website didn't resemble anything modern(more 90's), so I offered help in this regard, with a website rewritten from scratch and adapted to mobile devices too.

I used/learned-to-use HTML5, CSS3 and a bit of PHP(for the translations part).
In this project I also learned/used those technologies for myself too.

Nowadays I do a little bit of maintenance, from time to time, which is painless because of good use of PHP modularity features.

Advansys SpA

Advansys SpA Demo

As a tech exercise at one of my previous jobs, I sketched this demo as a restyling of their previous company website(thanks archive.org).

Nowadays their site look like this, similar to many others ._.

Personal
Renting service project

Renting service
(in development)

It's going to be an online renting service, similar to immobiliare.it but more automated and with more search criterias(and analytics about demand and offer trends/insights).
The development is going on mainly with the latest cross-platform Microsoft MVC/WebAPI framework .NET Core 2.x, HTML5, CSS3(SCSS) and JavaScript.

Self-reminder: update pictures to the latest design

This website 🙃

Started as a bunch of static HTML pages, evolved with NodeJS for SCSS stylesheet compilation and now fully ported to support the native environment Jekyll, for both HTML generation and styles compilation.

Now the management/update of this website has reached a really nice level of automation and modularity that I don't need to repeat myself almost at all 😄.

And the one you're seeing right now is the version 2.0(which also make use of CSSs grid), here is the previous 1.0.

QtCurvesCpp App sample

QtCurvesCpp

It's an app that I made through an online course in which I learned the basics of the Qt framework and GUI building. It was a funny experience and I think I'll use this framework for some of my next projects.

This is a link to such program, extract it, and execute(on Windows) the QtCurvesCpp.exe inside the extracted folder.

A Website Generator

Was my first try/project about getting my websites generated dinamically in C++ and a library.

I kind of accomplished what I wanted at that time; some filesystem issue about paths get in the way and I left the project as it was.

Nowadays I keep it to remember that experience ^_^

Sample of output

HTMLgenerator

Made in C#, it make use of another library that can generate differently themed sets of colours, which I adapted to generate some HTML forms with random color set generated from that library, output is an html.txt file, which content I copy-paste in the actual template index.html.

No further updates I made on it, it was made for the sake of experimenting on an old idea.

Hobbies

Art/Design

I'm fairly good at drawing tribal style people or abstractions since I was teen.

I always had a good steady hand in general, and made good technical drawings with it.

DevRant

A glimpse at the lifes of other Developers.

Not really much of a hobby, but keeps me engaged everyday.

Jogging

Because my job requires a long daily sedentary period, I feel the need to keep up my health at a good state.
And also this physical activity is a good stress reliever.
