  • Software Engineer

    2017 - 2018

    • Created a thread-safe SQLIte wrapper with a pool of prepared statements, which allows reuse of popular queries without recompiling. The wrapper also provides an additional layer of convenience and safety, allowing session termination while it is still being used from other threads.
    • Implemented a new binary storage format for backed up data that brings better storage efficiency, data consistency and better run-time performance. Implemented facilities for performance testing new vs old data formats vs. platform native file system operations.
    • Worked on migrating an existing solution from the old to the new meta-data storage back-end.
    • Upgraded and set up an existing build system and toolchain on CI server to support C++11 builds.

    • Designed and implemented a data packing protocol for Node-to-Node and Node-to-Client communication in a distributed high-load system with significantly reduced amount of traffic in certain conditions (30% to 70% reduction on average). That allowed for rollout of a new game mode that would otherwise increase traffic spikes to a level that would cause significant lag and negatively affect user experience.
    • Implemented a matchmaking system for the bot sandbox mode.
    • Improved the tutorial system back-end for the "Funnel" project. Also performed refactoring of the quest engine.
    • Fixed lots of bugs and made improvements to the existing Python back-end of a high-load project.

    • Improved performance of image decoding in an image-processing framework by using multi-threaded decoding, smart algorithms, and common scenes. Maintained, refactored, and fixed bugs for the same project.
    • Implemented an auto-update feature for Qt-based cross-platform VoIP client. Ported the application to the Linux platform and implemented platform-dependent startup code for both Linux and Windows platforms.
    • Built a Symbian app client for a synchronization service. Implemented synchronizing data to/from various data sources. Updated HTTP support to allow huge files downloads.
    • Worked on lots of other Symbian applications, but since Symbian has been dead for a long time now, there is little sense in describing it all here.
