I started developing websites at school when the majority of my peers didn't even have a computer. The main thing for me was a result, not a process, so I used Dreamweaver both for design and layout, jumping from time to time into the source code.2004-2006
Over time, the hobby turned into the profession, but the industry was early in its development, so I had to be a "jack of all trades". However, Dreamweaver became insufficient for create good design and, despite a popular tendency to draw sites using Photoshop, I chose Fireworks. I am still faithful to it and in my opinion it is the best tool for designing user interface. Also Dreamweaver was no longer enough for layouting, so I switched to pure HTML and CSS, began to study PHP, which was gaining popularity back to that time.2007-2010
Along with Java I was learning related technologies: Spring framework, Freemarker and tools: ant, gradle, svn, git, etc...2013-2014
In recent years, I managed to work with things like backbonejs, angularjs, less, sass. Currently I’m devoting some free time to studying Scala.
