Serhii Geraschenko

Back-End Teacher & Author

I’m a team lead with LampDev. I’ve been a web-developer since 2010, and have worked with clients from dozens of countries. Within my company, I’ve taught more than 15 beginning developers. Some of them founded their small companies later. I love constantly developing – it’s not boring. When I started work, it was interesting to get outside of Back-End. And now, when teaching, I love to explain difficult things by way of simple examples. In my free time, I do sports.

Back-End Teacher

I work as a Senior Software Developer for Ecentria Solutions in Odesa. I’m working on a big retail project from the USA. My tasks are connected with the import of goods on websites and integrations with suppliers. My work is 100% intellectual, and I have to think hard all the time. I like endless opportunities for self-growth and development. Reaching a certain concrete level makes you discover how everything on the internet works. You see how businesses sell and witness plenty of efforts being spent on making ordering online easy and fast for you. The bonus is that a lot of respectable IT companies allow you to work remotely and with no fixed working hours. First of all, I want to create a friendly atmosphere in a group. I want everybody to ask questions fearlessly. Coding has to be interesting and funny. My task is to lead the students in the right direction. In my free time I like playing guitar and ping-pong.

The course passed easily and free of hassle. The teacher always supported us and answered any questions we had, even those which weren't really planned for the course. Our Regional Coordinator cheered us up and never allowed us to give up. I would definitely recommend Beetroot Academy to my friends and acquaintances.
