f3d0r Paretsky

Mobile & Back-end Expert.
I adore optimization and forming short-cuts.

Intro

My short about me spiel.

Hey! I'm Fedor Paretsky. I'm a student at the UW (Seattle, WA) studying Applied Physics and Mathematics.
I like working on products/applications that invoke socioeconomic and environmental change.

My goal:
to create a product that helps the environment and improves the life of millions beyond my lifetime.

My pledge(s):
never seek employment in a company if it has more than one thousand employees - it is my goal to consistently maintain a high-impact position/career.

In my free time, I'm a Code Evangelist® at srnd.org, a non-profit that runs events like CodeDay and CodeBreak to increase diversity in the Computer Science industry. I also like to ride/fix road bikes, go cross-country skiing, and code at cafes in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA.

Expertise

Oooohh mama.
01

Android

Realm, GSON, Retrofit, Google Libraries, Kotlin

I have a multitude of experience in Android application development and teaching. I love developing Android applications the most in my free time, because I'm always excited to witness people's lives being improved through the use of my applications.

02

Backends

node.js, SQL, web.py (Python)

These are the back-end frameworks/languages where I have the most experience. For node.js back-ends, I typically use a standard Express web framework, and sometimes also add some direct network socket functionality to add efficiency to my back-end for apps that have larger amounts of data. I also have some experience with web.py in Python, which I use for barebones back-end development and SQL for relational database design/implementation.

03

Hardware

Arduino/Raspberry Pi

Fiddling with small electronics is another one of my favorite hobbies. I love working with Arduinos to retrofit old machines/interfaces, using sensors/data to make daily tasks easier, or just hacking something portably by putting it on a Raspberry Pi. One time, I threw some code on a Raspberry Pi that could catch WPA/WPA2 handshakes and dictionary-attack handshakes on a remote server, drove around my neighborhood, and cracked almost all the Wi-Fi networks in the vicinity in under five minutes!

04

Algorithms, AI

Python

A lot of the practice that I do to understand more difficult Computer Science concepts and algorithms is done in Python. I love reading about and working to understand the more modern problems in CS, like AI and Quantum Computing (another reason I'm majoring in Physics).
