The Dynamic Ruby course, delivered by Alexander, proved to be very useful for me. Alexander is a good professional and excellent teacher. The material was given gradually and with a lot of examples, that made it comprehensible and enabled me to memorize and learn it well.
Kate Batsenko | Head of Education at GoIT:
In summer 2015 Alex has delivered series of Master Classes & Workshops dedicated to Ruby for GoIT students and alumni. He composed it of two parts - "Ruby in general" (providing a broad view of Ruby as a programming language, with very useful practical examples and metaprogramming) and "Automation Testing in Ruby" (using cucumber + watir-webdriver technologies). The students and alumni, who are developers and QA engineers as well, and are interested in studying Ruby for automation, enjoyed these workshops very much. They especially noted the intense material and its applicability, and Alex's undoubted talent of a teacher / speaker. Thanks again and hope for further co-operation!

Alex is an outstanding engineer and QA. It seems like he got a sixth sense on bugs and blind spots revealing. Along with a great personality, he is proactive and passionate QA.
Konstantin Govorukha | QA Automation Team Lead at Adyax:
Alex has a good experience in automated testing. He is a well productive person. During my work with Alex I noted often he worked faster than me and I could assign to him tasks which should be done in short time period. Also he learned new knowledge pretty quickly so it was not a problem to give absolutely new unknown task to Alex. I think Alex is a person who will learn new technologies during all the time. I was glad to work with Alex and I recomend him to other people.
