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.

Students say:

After graduation, I took part in design competitions. In Betlab I was among the three best juniors. In Cogniance I’ve become one of the five best creative juniors in the Design Challenge 2018 mobile app development competition.

Talan Viktoriya, Kyiv

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

After graduation, I developed some websites for clients. I had a serious push to act. I believed in myself and I still do. I’ve found my favorite job and I’m happy — no matter how silly this sounds.

Gromadiuk Galina, Ivano-Frankivsk

I remember many things: the informal atmosphere, comfortable location of the tables, interesting approach of the teacher.

Doroshenko Ivan, Mykolaiv, Freelancer

I’ve understood that I can not only work but share my knowledge at different IT conferences. Later I've found my ow conference in Kharkiv. Also, I work as a coach in an HTML academy.
