Hi, my name is Georgy and I'm a Software Engineer with primary expertise in fine-tuned UX. I'm skilled in writing performant and maintainable code and passionate about accessibility, animation, "sweating the small stuff", and leading teams. Of all the things possible, I love improving experience, whether it is user experience or developer experience. I'm a product-focused developer who likes to be involved in product design and decisions.
My background is strongly based on the design agency work, where I collaborated with sound names like Adidas, Avast, Decathlon, KPMG, Raiffeisen, or 3M. I also worked closely with startups like Czech FinTech Twisto and others, with a list ending with Estonian Pipedrive, where I spend most of my time at the moment.
In my free time, you can find me working on open source projects to make life easier for myself and others, and I'm an author of a popular page transition library called swup. I also write up my thoughts for internet blogs like CSS-Tricks from time to time or speak at a meetups from time to time.

- Testing The CLI The Way People Use It - Have you ever wondered, why do people write CLI tools? When is a good time to think about yours? Today we’ll touch on these questions, along with some tips to remember when creating one. However, all of this serves as a prelude to the real topic: end-to-end testing of CLI tools.
- Page Transitions for Everyone - If we take a look at how mobile apps are designed today, there is very often some sort of animated transition between states. Even ready-to-use native components have some kind of simple animation between states. Developers and designers realized…
- Browser painting and considerations for web performance - The web is a place of many environments, where the developer's environment is often far different than the user's. While there is no need to change our ways or switch to lazy computers, it definitely helps to see our work the way it is seen by others from time to time…
- Is IFrame still relevant? - It’s a couple months into the beginning of the year again, and I’ve been subconsciously evaluating the previous year.
