Hayk is a detail-oriented software engineer with over a decade of experience—building scalable, robust web systems. He's deeply familiar with the software lifecycle (from conception to deployment and maintenance) and useful development practices, i.e., TDD, OOP, agile, and more. What Hayk relishes about his field is that to create inventive solutions, you need to balance out-of-the-box thinking while remaining focused on the client's goal.
