Stanislav Khromov

๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Hello! My name is Stanislav Khromov and I am a full-stack software engineer based in Stockholm, Sweden.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป๏ธ My main competency lies in modern JavaScript and TypeScript. I like to work with React, Svelte and Vue as well as frameworks like Next.js, Sapper, Express and Koa.

๐Ÿ˜ 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.

๐Ÿณ I am passionate about containerized development using Docker and have experience running complex applications on Amazon Web Services.

๐Ÿ”จ I work at Schibsted in the development team responsible for the most popular website site 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.

Projects

Open-source

I have worked on hundreds of open-source projects, which you can find on my GitHub profile.

WordPress plugins

Over the years I have published and maintain a number of WordPress plugins on WordPress.org as well as on GitHub.

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.

Docker containers

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? ๐Ÿ˜Š

You can find some of the Docker containers I’ve built on Docker Hub or GitHub.
