My name is Andrey Smirnov. I work for Virtustream. I’m a big fan of Go, Python, DevOps and high-load projects.
Previously, I was team development lead at Skype Qik (Microsoft). There my team was in charge of the asynchronous communication backend.
Prior to that I was leading development of smotri.com, a Russian clone of YouTube. You can see my resume here to get more details.
I frequently give talks at conferences. A long time ago I taught at Moscow State University.
