Vitaly Sharovatov

I'm 32 y.o. web-developer and I specialise in client-side, web apps architecture and performance.

I started working in client-side development area back in 1999, had all the fun supporting IE5.01/Opera 7 (was even testing stuff in Mozilla) in commercial projects with semantic markup, proper CSS and unobtrusive js (and ajax, of course) much before jQuery or other popular tools appeared, so had the wonderful time of discovering all the browsers incompatibilities and quirks. As of 2003, I also started designing web apps achitecture with proper perfomance in mind, studied HTTP/1.0 and 1.1 spec (which I love and am still amazed by), learnt DB theory and practiced in Mysql/MSSQL.

From October 2006 till October 2012 I worked in the UK-based visa company RealRussia Limited, started as a web-developer and grew into an IT Team Leader there.

From October 2012 till March 2015 I worked in Mail.Ru as a front-end web-developer.

Since March 2015 till November 2015 I worked in Badoo as a senior javascript developer and then shifted to being a Mobile Web Team Lead there.

My hobbies are: brazilian jiu jitsu, philosophy, gym.

I usually post to a blog and welcome any comments, but if there is something you need to discuss urgently, I can be reached by a mobile phone (07825 561225), skype (vitaly.sharovatov) or email.
