I'm focused on the result and use to work in a team. Love the cases when the team has full-stack control of the project. On the front-end side, I prefer to use TypeScript, React, Reflux or Redux, SASS and sure Webpack. On the back-end side, I prefer to use Node.js and Go. I have experience with following databases and engines: MongoDB, MySQL, Redis, RabbitMQ, Manticore Search (a fork of Sphinx). Familiar with mobile development React Native, Cordova, and Java (Android). I use TDD on the projects when possible. I'm familiar with UI tests. I'm also familiar with basic DevOps stuff (Docker and Docker Swarm). Things I have mentioned are just my preferences, in the reality, I'm making decisions based on the situation.
