EPAM Solution Architecture School Diploma

It took more than 4 months to complete SAS (Solution Architecture School) – but it worth it. Great networking and knowledge sharing with both students and experienced Solution Architects, participation in thrilling practical projects and Architecture Kata games, new technology domains and solution architecture best practices… After these amazing and challenging months my vision of Solution Architecture widened very much. Can’t say significantly – since I was already familiar with most of the topics, but networking and live practices were definitely something really important. And of course – I definitely recommend EPAM SAS for anyone who is interested to broaden Solution Architecture knowledge. It’s amazing experience!

Google Cloud Certified Professional Cloud Architect Certificate

I received this certificate despite being very busy with EPAM Solution Architecture School – and actually, it was the perfect kick-off to take interest to GCP much more serious than I did before. It took almost year since September 2017 when I first attended Cloud Sandbox in Krakow, and until I tried to learn GCP deeper and get certified. Now it’s not only hobby – it’s something I may be officially proud of, and something I’m using in my day-to-day Solution Architect practice.

Slides from my talk “What’s New in Firebase and Google Cloud” at GDG Ukraine Post I/O Tour 2018

The Post I/O Tour 2018 is the biggest annual series of GDG Ukraine events, started in June and finished in August, during which our fellow Google Developers shared knowledge and highlights from I/O in many cities of Ukraine, including Cherkasy, Kremenchuk, Kharkiv, Poltava, Kropyvnytskyy, and of course Kyiv. My topic was about Firebase and Google Cloud, mostly because at that time I was actively involved in Solution Architecture practice and prepared for Google Cloud Certification.

Slides from my talk “Mobile Applications Architecture” at GDG Ternopil’ Architecture Components Meetup 02.12.2017

Actually this was my first pure architectural talk.
No single line of code and no deep diving into frameworks implementations. Only architecture patterns and principles, project lifecycle and business reasoning for different architectures according to their complexity and spectrum of efforts.
(one slide with links for Architecture Components is still included  )
