Speaker Bio

I started my career in IT as an iOS developer back in the days of the iPhone 3GS. I tried different roles and worked as an engineering manager and even a CTO in a small startup. Three years ago, I joined JetBrains as a developer advocate for Kotlin. Now I have become a product marketing manager for Kotlin Multiplatform, as I love mobile development and strongly believe in a crossplatform approach, with Kotlin Multiplatform, of course. 😁  I’m also a co-host of a famous IT podcast for the Russian-speaking audience.
