Stanislav Khromov

👋🏻 Hello! My name is Stanislav Khromov and I am a full-stack software engineer based in Stockholm, Sweden.

👨‍💻️ I mainly like to work with modern JavaScript and TypeScript. My favourite technologies right now are Svelte/SvelteKit and React/Next.js.

🐘 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 –, which has over 4 million daily visitors.



I work as a software engineer at Aftonbladet (Schibsted Media Group).

My days are mostly spent working with Node.js-based microservices, React & Svelte frontends, Docker for containerization and AWS CDK for building infrastructure. Check out my LinkedIn profile for more information.


Open-source and writing

Open-source is one of the most important fundamentals to a free and open world. Most of the code I write outside my job is on GitHub. I also develop and maintain several WordPress plugins.

I write, mostly about technical topics right here on this blog. I also have a blog filled with hundreds of general-purpose code snippets.



When people meet, amazing things happen. I 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 been the lead organizer for WordCamp Stockholm multiple times and have been a recurring teacher in web fundamentals and web development at Berghs School of Communication.

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.
