About Alexander Pushkarev

With more than 10 years in IT I had a chance to work in different areas, such as development, testing and management. I had a chance to work with PHP, Java, Python and .Net platform with different application from microservices to monolithic and monstrous desktop UI applications.
With such a rich background I decided to focus on things that help to deliver high-quality software, starting from inception and all the way to operation.
Currently I am holding a position of Test Automation Tech Lead, but I prefer to consider myself a full-stack engineer. My passions are quality and efficiency. Agile fan and XP practitioner.
