First, we'll give you ten bucks if you can pronounce Sergei's name perfectly.
Our resident Russian started his life as a musician with a sneaky code hobby on the side. He studied music at the Lipetsk State Pedagogical University but ultimately put his guitar down to pursue a damn successful career in development. He's written code for dozens of e-commerce sites, internet and VoIP services providers, and, oh, just the biggest Forex broker in Russia. *cough*
Sergei's vast experience building transactional type systems (eCommerce and Forex systems) enables him to focus on security, data integrity and infrastructure layer services and configuration. When Sergei is not maniacally coding away in Springload HQ, he's still, um, writing code at home. He's dedicated to say the least.
