Member since July 6, 2018
Igor has been a Java developer for over a decade. While in touch with the latest frameworks, he always puts emphasis on fundamental concepts and best practices in code writing first. He strives to write maintainable code and follows a strict separation of concerns. Duplicate or dead code is not an option. He follows a client-oriented approach, understanding that the client's success is his own success.
