Please tell us a little about yourself

I'm Russian, living with my family (wife and son) in Prague.

What do you do for IronJacamar ?

I provide mostly testing support for IronJacamar. I write unit tests to check the functionality of IronJacamar. I also write and execute integration tests for the JCA component in WildFly. My primary task is to find bugs and make fixes as soon as possible, so I participate in IronJacamar as a developer too.

How did you get started contributing to IronJacamar ?

In the year 2011 I joined Red Hat's JBoss Quality Assurance Team. There I met the guys from the IronJacamar team, which helped me with JCA component testing. And of course the kick off meeting in Beijing had a great impact too.

How much time do you spend working on IronJacamar ?

Almost every day. As a JCA specialist in the QA team I need to dive into the IronJacamar code often.

What keeps you motivated ?

An opportunity to learn new things and participate in the world leading JCA implementation project.

What are some of your future goals for your involvement with IronJacamar ?

Testing of the new functional features (like DistributedWorkManager) and taking part in the development of the new major version of IronJacamar.

CSKA (Moscow) vs. * ?

CSKA forever !

"Queen" vs. "The Beatles" ?

Both are brilliant

Vodka vs. Whiskey ?


Lazy holiday on the beach vs. Sightseeing ?

I'm lazy :)

USSR vs. Russia ?

Both. But people in USSR were better.

What are some of your hobbies and interests outside of IronJacamar ?

Sports (now mostly as a fan), good movies books and music, spending time with my family, cooking, parties with friends, travelling abroad and hiking.

What would you suggest to help people getting started with IronJacamar ?

Don't be afraid, just start with it. We'll help.

Any closing comments ?

It's a great honor for me to work with all these guys from IronJacamar. I admire the work we do together.
