I'm Georgi and I love to solve problems with code, tinker with smart home automation projects and fly FPV racing drones.
Currently I work as a web developer. If you are interested in my skills here's a brief overview.
I love all things web and frequently dig around performance topics. I love open source projects and enjoy reading code on Github. I think we live in exciting times for the web where we have a choice of advanced tools and frameworks and a huge potential for Web Components and Mobile first and Offline first web to become a reality.
