A short info about me

I'm Levan (aka Stichoza). I am a web developer and a citizen of Planet Earth. I create webapps, websites and web-everything with passion.

I love developing with Laravel Framework, PHP. And Node.js is also something I enjoy.

My hobbies include photography, travelling, ecotourism and all kinds of outdoor activities combined with extreme sports.

Still about meBut more technically (a.k.a Resume)

I started to code in my high-school youth. From then I'm learning new things and doing some cool shit.

My friends and I founded the very first dev community around Google products which later became an official Google Developers Group in Georgia - GDG Tbilisi.

After several years we founded uniHack and organized hackathons for students. We became partners with MLH and several other awesome organizations.

I'm also very proud to be a member of Node.js Foundation and a contributor of open-source world.
