Alex was born and raised in Ukraine in a small town with a big family (he has three siblings). He started learning computer science when he was a teenager.

He didn't have a good Internet connection until he had grown up and got his first job in a factory and had his own money.

After a few years of hard work and study he had finally got a job where he could do what he loves, - programming.

The first thing that inspires him is when he can see that something he's created works and benefits people. This always brings him joy.

Second, he likes to learn new things and work provides him with the chance to do so.

Also, his dream is a world where all the boring stuff is automated by computers and people don't have to waste time doing it. That’s what he lives for.

He used to sing in a school chorus so he thinks he could be a great singer

He's too lazy to do 5 minute-long routine tasks, he prefers spending hours to automate it instead

Loves to play heavy metal and classic rock on the guitar even though it bores most people.

The Lion could not be the king of the Jungle because he lives in the Savannah.
