👋🏻 Hello! My name is Stanislav Khromov and I am a full-stack software engineer based in Stockholm, Sweden.
🐘 I have many years of experience with modern PHP-based development in WordPress and Laravel. I am a WordPress Core contributor and developer of dozens of WordPress plugins. Lately I’ve been working a lot with Gutenberg – the new React-powered content editor in WordPress.
🐳 I am passionate about containerized development using Docker and have experience running complex applications on Amazon Web Services.
🔨 I work at Schibsted in the development team responsible for the most popular website in Sweden – aftonbladet.se, which has over 4 million daily visitors. There are a lot of unique scaling and infrastructure challenges associated with this that I’m thoroughly enjoying.
Below you can find some more tidbits about me.
When people meet, amazing things happen. I always try to organize meetups, events and hackathons. I am currently a co-organizer of Schibsted Hack Day, Svelte Society Stockholm and the WordPress Stockholm Meetup Group.
I have also been the lead organizer for WordCamp Stockholm multiple times.
Speaking at events
I mostly speak about WordPress-related topics. You can see the talks that have been recorded here.
I have also been a recurring teacher in web fundamentals and web development at Berghs School of Communication.
I blog mostly about technical topics on this blog. I also have a blog filled with hundreds of general-purpose snippets.
I occasionally make music.
I have worked on hundreds of open-source projects, many of which you can find on my GitHub profile.
Over the years I have published and maintain a number of WordPress plugins on WordPress.org as well as on GitHub.
Unwanted Cloud is a recently launched site aiming at reviewing smart devices from a privacy-conscious perspective. It highlights the potential pitfalls of smart devices and data collection, and aims to inform consumers and offer them privacy-preserving product alternatives.
Useful Snippets blog
The Useful Snippets blog started as a personal project in 2013 where I wrote down how to accomplish common day-to-day computer tasks, such as checking for open ports on your computer or importing MySQL database dumps.
I quickly noticed that the blog proved to be popular on Google and more than 300 posts later the site recently celebrated its one millionth visitor.

The recent development in containerized and serverless applications presents a shift in how we will run our infrastructure in the future, and who doesn’t want to be part of that? 😊
You can find some of the Docker containers I’ve built on Docker Hub or GitHub.
