Oleksii Kaliuzhnyi

Front-End & WordPress Teacher and Author

I’m a freelancer. I love to manage my own time the way I want. In one week I can hold lessons in  Beetroot Academy Poltava, then go to a conference in Kyiv and then be at a workshop in Lviv.   Front-End is a field under constant development. Non-standard tasks force me to strive to bigger things and check my own strength.   In my lessons I explain how it works. I keep a friendly and funny atmosphere. Each new group asks me about something I never thought about. So, teaching is a development for me.   I relax at loud parties and by playing video games.

The lessons were natural, clear and constructive. There was a lot of practice. And then was a meeting with employers and I was very proud of my project presentation.

Kucher Natalia, Kramatorsk

Things were comfortable and cozy at the lessons. After graduating, I got 3 projects for my portfolio. The 4th one was a test task for a studio. They hired me without an interview. I believed in myself because of Beetroot Academy.

Domme Anna, Kyiv

I entered the finals of the DevChallenge 11 championship in 2017. I believed that I can do any task — doesn't matter how complicated it is. An I’ve realized that entering the IT industry is real.

Bardar Pavel, Poltava

It was difficult to start. I knew a little about programming. But everything in the courses was interesting. And now — I'm a developer.
