I'm Russian, living with my family (wife and son) in Prague.
What do you do for IronJacamar ?
I provide mostly testing support for IronJacamar. I write unit tests to check the functionality
of IronJacamar. I also write and execute integration tests for the JCA component in WildFly.
My primary task is to find bugs and make fixes as soon as possible, so I participate in IronJacamar
as a developer too.
How did you get started contributing to IronJacamar ?
In the year 2011 I joined Red Hat's JBoss Quality Assurance Team. There I met the guys from the IronJacamar team,
which helped me with JCA component testing. And of course the kick off meeting in Beijing had a great impact too.
How much time do you spend working on IronJacamar ?
Almost every day. As a JCA specialist in the QA team I need to dive into the IronJacamar code often.
What keeps you motivated ?
An opportunity to learn new things and participate in the world leading JCA implementation project.
What are some of your future goals for your involvement with IronJacamar ?
Testing of the new functional features (like DistributedWorkManager) and taking part in the development
of the new major version of IronJacamar.
CSKA (Moscow) vs. * ?
CSKA forever !
"Queen" vs. "The Beatles" ?
Both are brilliant
Vodka vs. Whiskey ?
Lazy holiday on the beach vs. Sightseeing ?
I'm lazy :)
USSR vs. Russia ?
Both. But people in USSR were better.
What are some of your hobbies and interests outside of IronJacamar ?
Sports (now mostly as a fan), good movies books and music, spending time with my family, cooking,
parties with friends, travelling abroad and hiking.
What would you suggest to help people getting started with IronJacamar ?
Don't be afraid, just start with it. We'll help.
Any closing comments ?
It's a great honor for me to work with all these guys from IronJacamar. I admire
the work we do together.
