Hello, I’m Vlad Shvedov! I’m Software Engineer. I started programming when I was 10 on my ZX Spectrum 16K clone. Basic and then Zilog Z80 Assembler on ZX 128K. I spent most of the middle school learning Borland Pascal and OOP on my Intel 80386 SX PC, helping my Dad with scientific calculations and artificial life simulators (as I was sure I’ll be a microbiologist). In high school, I found FIDO and had my own BBS with home-brew software running while keep programming and learning Economics in University, until I finally got unlimited access to the Internet. Here is my story, as of Web Developer begins, as I discovered Perl and CGI programming.
My current scope of interests is closely connected with self-generative systems, Natural Language Processing, distributed Web Applications development, CNC (I made the electronics for my CNC milling machine) and woodworking (most of all I’m interested in making electric guitars).
Music is a big part of my life. I’m not playing in any band anymore, however I have some music projects, and I’m highly interested in sound synthesis, Eurorack, and modular synths and music making software development.
For web using Ruby/Rails, Arduino C/C++ and Python for electronics prototyping and Flutter for mobile apps. I’m also using Fusion360 for all CNC and 3D printing.
Recently, my wife and I have started developing an interactive encyclopedia for kids and their parents.
