This is Aleksas Pantechovskis
Aleksas is 25 years old and lives in Vilnius, Lithuania.
How would you describe yourself?
“I have a great passion for software development, especially when the product that I am working on is used by other people and makes some kind of impact. For me, it is important to enrich the lives of others with my work. I want to create something valuable.”
“It’s cool that nowadays we can create many great things just by writing code. When programming, I love to focus on the quality of the code and automation of all processes (automated testing, deployment, etc.) But I also try to stop myself from over-engineering too much, to actually focus on solving the problem itself.”
How do you spend your spare time?
“Also, I participate in online communities and forums, e. g. Reddit, StackOverflow, and smaller Russian-speaking programming and IT forums ‒ by the way: Russian is my first language. This way I help others with their questions and problems, and improve my knowledge at the same time. Hexlet Slack chat is another good example. It’s a big Russian community, initially dedicated to the Hexlet programming courses (a Russian analogue of Treehouse), but then grew into something bigger. People stay there even if they do not take any of these courses currently, discuss different programming-related topics, participate in open source projects, etc.”
“And I like travelling. I always try to travel a bit during summer. I have visited France last time and ‒ since it is a beautiful country and I enjoyed my time there ‒ my next travel destination will be France again, and more precisely: Menton. It’s a small city near Nice. There are many places to visit around like Monaco, Cannes, Grasse.”
Aleksas’s way to Inpsyde
“I was interested in programming since I was a child, so I was gradually learning, reading books, taking online courses, participating in different contests, communities, personal and open source projects. In 2019, I finished my Master’s degree in Computer Science.”
“Before I came to Inpsyde, I tried to work as a freelancer but I did not like it much because a lot of the time is spent looking for new projects, and I prefer working in a team because it opens more possibilities. A good team can achieve much more than one person, and it allows you to have more communication with people, and thus not feel lonely when working.”
“Inpsyde was interesting for me because I liked the company values and the way of working. But at first, I was a bit worried about WordPress because it has poor reputation regarding the code quality. But then I learned that this mostly concerns the legacy code in the WordPress core, which does not really limit you much when developing plugins and other things on top of that. So, it is possible to write good code here, use modern tools and practices. And Inspyde actually focuses a lot on that, producing one of the best code and products in this sector.”
“I really enjoy working at Inpsyde. The team consists of great people, the working atmosphere is pleasant, and I appreciate the focus on code quality and architecture. I’m looking forward to challenging my programming and communication skills.”
