My name is Sasha Shpota. I am a programmer. I write mostly in Java, but also in Go, Kotlin, TypeScript/JavaScript, and occasionally in Python. At the moment, I work as a full-stack developer. In my day to day work, I implement back end functionality together with the front end, take care of their quality and deliver the applications using Docker and Kubernetes.

I am an active open-source contributor and have authored several tools and applications, which you can find on my GitHub. The most popular is Goxygen - a tool that generates full-stack web projects with Go on the back end and Angular, React or Vue on the front end.

I believe that in the programming field it is important to collaborate with the development community, help others, and accept help yourself. That’s why I contribute regularly to StackOverflow by answering programming questions as well as asking them.

I am a big fan of the DevOps culture and I think that a modern developer must manage the full application cycle from designing the application to delivering it to end-users. I also think that automation is the best way to make programmers’ lives easier.

In my spare time, I like reading books, going to the gym, traveling and enjoying free time with my family. Of course, I code from time to time. In the meantime I like exploring new cultures and new languages - I am learning German at the moment, and I can’t wait until I am able to communicate freely with native speakers.

On this blog, I share my thoughts mostly about software development and on everything that interests me.
