About Me

Hi, I'm Alexander. Thank you for visiting my site!

I'm a passionate software engineer with many years of professional experience building software and leading teams in both large companies and small startups. I truly love software. I enjoy writing it and writing about it.

I currently live and work in New York area, 🇺🇸. I am originally from Moscow, Russia. I also got a chance to live Kraków, Poland and Honolulu, Hawaii.

I write at kean.github.io where you can find advanced articles on a variety of topics. I write when I truly have something to add to the community. Most of my latest articles are long-format, up to 3000 words. kean.github.io has thousands of monthly visitors. Many of my articles were featured in popular newsletters, such as iOS Dev Weekly and iOS Goodies.

I authored and maintain multiple high-quality open-source frameworks, including Nuke, Future, Align, Regex, and many more.

Nuke is used by thousands of apps and is widely recognized on GitHub, earning more than 4000 stars. A popular website www.raywenderlich.com has two tutorials on Nuke. GitHub named Nuke 7 one of the best releases in May 2018. Nuke was on the list of top trending frameworks on GitHub a number of times.
