Hey, my name is Yaroslav (Slava) Tkachenko, I was born in Russia and I’m currently living in Vancouver, Canada.
I’m a software engineer, at the moment Senior Data Engineer at Activision.
I like functional programming and distributed systems, you can find more info about what I do below and in my resume.

I also love cooking and enjoying great healthy food. I’ve been a vegetarian for a few years and I really appreciate my choice.
Mentoring and teaching is something I always excited to do, either in my current company via conversations, workshops, 1-to-1s and lunch & learns or public speaking. Writing is a big part of me too, at the moment I use my blog for that, but I hope that once I’ll have time and expertise to write a book. That also means that I read A LOT, mostly professional stuff, fiction (sci-fi, fantasy) and non-fiction (I like history and biographies).
Manchester United FC fan since 2002 ;–)
