Since 2006, Hayk's been working as a full-stack developer with a myriad of tech and languages. Currently, his forte is HTML5 Canvas for front-end wizardry and Node.js for back-end magic. He also has a creative background—an appreciation for design which allows him to execute layouts down to the pixel. Hayk's also worked as a senior QA engineer which helps him think about testing as a fundamental part of the development process.
