2D Game for PPC 2003
The link includes several screenshots and a small clip from a game I developed it for PPC 2003.

Sample of a Complex GUI Based on BCG Library
There are three custom controls in the screenshot:
- Custom list view control
- DriveMap control
- Legend control

These controls are based on the CWnd class. I implemented all the logic from scratch.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Alexey Abramovskiy. He was our employee during August 2007 - September 2009 and I'm still sorry he left. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Alexey was working on several projects inside our company. He started on a senior developer role and his motivation and skills allowed to complete several project for mobile platforms. He was quickly promoted to lead developer/architect position role and this was one of the best decisions I personally made. On this position he was a key contributor to a new very challenging project. He was responsible for developing cross-platform VoIP engine allowing to work in slow networks. His attention to details, great architect skills and ability to quickly learn allowed to successfully complete the project in short time frame.

Alexey also is a nice person with good communication skills. Again, I cannot recommend him highly enough and he will be a key asset for any team."

To whom it may concern:

Alexei Abramovskii has joined DInsight in 2010 in a Lead Software Developer role. We were impressed by his ability quickly get up to speed with complex issues. He has excellent analytical skills, remarkable attention to details and quality of work.

He also has excellent design skills, ability to see the big picture and think through issues of scalability, quality and support. His code is clean and logical.

His proactive attitude to his duties has prevented many major issues with released products. Alexei is very productive. In fact all key features in versions 3.0 and 3.1 of Kernel CAD suite were implemented by him.

In short period of time he has become involved in various parts of the system and different platforms and technologies from core system functionality and complex geometric algorithms to Graphic User Interface in Microsoft .NET framework with consistently top notch professional attitude.

We also value high his honesty and work ethics. He is nice and friendly and has good communication skills. I am confident he will be a great asset to any team."
