Anton Averich

I've been working in the image processing field for more than 11 years. During that time I had the opportunity to work on both sides: as the R&D engineer and as the Head of R&D. The C++ language has a bad reputation for being very complex and using it can lead to lots of subtle bugs. I think it's all prejudice. Yes, the language is not easy, but modern standards, a set of recommendations from professionals, and the right approach to learning will make the learning process simple and almost painless.

Mykhailo Kabanenko

I’m the Windows department tech lead at Skylum. I've been a master of Paint since 8 years and PowerPoint animations since 11. I have always been amazed how the motion of the picture captures the viewer’s focus and leads to the conceived places, providing a wow-effect. That’s why all my subsequent jobs were tied in one way or another with visualisation, which eventually led me to programming, and ultimately to Skylum. My current role is to provide users with both a powerful photo processing tool and an intuitive application. Simple and sometimes non-standard approaches to development + modern UI / UX - this is exactly the multiclass on which you need to spend all the experience points earned.

Igor Ovechko

I've been creating products for Mac and iOS for more than 12 years, as well as developing cross-platform solutions and web services using different languages ​​and technologies. I choose different tools depending on the task to get the greatest outcomes. I'm constantly learning and expanding my arsenal, and also helping others to reach new heights, and enjoy their accomplishments.
