January Kyiv, Kerch
April Dortmund, Amsterdam, Brussels
May Kyiv, Odessa
June Shchaslyvtseve (Azov Sea)
July Lviv, Warsaw, Gdansk
September Warsaw, Lisbon, Basel
November Kyiv, Frankfurt, Valencia, Munich
In July I visited the OMBIZ forum in Lviv, Ukraine:
In September, I and my friend Roman attended the DNX festival conference in Lisbon, Portugal. We met many interesting people who create something:
I graduated from university and received my master’s degree:
It was published 24 posts. 2 of my posts was cross-posted to the official blog of Expo SDK. Also, my unique tutorial was featured on Polyglot Developer. They sent me an author-pack, but it stuck on Ukrainian customs. For one of my tutorials, I recorded a video.
The main – created more or less stable passive income stream. It is not very big money, but very pleasant. Less downloads, than in previous year, but more sales. I can’t calculate, but published around 5-6 applications and same quantity was not published. Also, I created account on Google Play and published first 4 apps, but after a 2 weeks Google banned me without a reason.
Worked on one Angular 5 project and Serverless App. Feedback from client:
Roman did a great job!
I played a little with different affiliation programs. One of the projects successfully worked and generated some $, but I closed it, because I needed to put all time to work on it and raise it in google search. Another project works without me (I automated it using DigitalOcean and Node.js), but generates 0$ and it will take a time to monetize it, because it should create a trust.
Also, in July I was attended on online Russian Speaking conference for developers. The theme of my story was “how to start working remotely as software developer”. It was my first experience of conference talk, but it was online.
