Alexander Shogenov. Full-Stack Web-Developer: PHP, NodeJS, React

Hello, I'm Full-Stack Web-Developer

Phone: 8-995-1-999-195


My github account is

Several projects to see my work and my code:

This site

Entrance form

Simple http client for php(To make http request from php)

Boilerplate for app on SlimPHP


2020 - NOW Freedom Finance


Web-Terminal for stock traders.

This is the complicated system includes terminal with charts and trading possibilities, CRM, control panel.

I take a part in improvements of this parts.

I have created a new web-socket server (instead old one) on nodejs. It is a very important part of trading terminal because this server sends real-time quotes of stocks to the browser.

I tried to make it simple but reliable. 

2018 - 2020 XIAG AG

I work in project hogashop.

I use the PHP and NodeJS for different tasks on the server and react in the browser.

Hogashop is the big project consisting of the microservices. For example, we have a separates module for API, each UI feature, import, etc.

For deploy and configuration, we use the salt stack. I write tests and follow Test-Driven Development. It's a very important and useful experience. This application is very popular in Switzerland. I like to develop something useful for people and something that make the everyday work of some people simplify.

2018 - 2018 Law company

I developed the website of the company(include design). I implemented this site using the slim framework. News section on this site uses the server-side rendering with react. Some js-components implemented using the react. For example forms and interactive svg map.

I implemented the js-css-compressor for minification, transform and gzipping css and js files.

2017 - 2018 Booking service

Don't be scared when going to this site. I didn't do the main site (only some small fixes). I created the account for hotels owners using react, redux. I used the bitrix as api. It was very strange but the main site written on the bitrix.

Account includes:

  • the registration with not simple logic;
  • adding the hotel in the system
  • editing the hotel info
  • adding the information and types of rooms
  • price table with editing price by different time period
  • moderation and separate UI for moderators
  • Integration with CRM and making invoices

2016 - 2017 Web-studio VuduTeam

I developed sites using different CMSs. All programmers(at some point in their life) want to develop own the best CMS. I try to do it in VuduTeam. I implemented the working version of CMS but now I afraid to look the code of it. I created the photo-album constructor using js, canvas at this period. Now it is

2014 - 2016 Web-studio Clickon

My first job as a programmer. I learned a new (for me) language parser.

I developed websites and web-application with different complexity. I've taken the next level in PHP, HTML, CSS and JS.

For example, I developed a nice site with some animations and interactive SVG-maps


before 2014 Learning and beginning with building the simple bad apps for the web

My key skills:


I use version 7 with the newest features. I like PHP for simplicity and power.

I am sure that we don't need the frameworks for each task. I like pure PHP. With the composer, is very powerful.

In the specific cases, I use slim framework and add the necessary libraries with the composer. You can see my boilerplate for slim and sqlite3.


On the server and in the browser. I use new features but I don't forget about transformation newest code to understandable for any browser.

For example, I implemented the js-css-compressor ( for one of the previous clients.


NodeJS is very useful for services that work like daemons.

And I made sites and API on the NodeJS too.

I took a little part in fixing a bug in the open-source project xlsx stream reader

For the NodeJS server, I prefer the Koa framework. It's very simple and nice.


I use the React, Redux, Sagas for frontend. With React I can build big complex interfaces, for example, single-page application, and I can implement small components for web-page insertions as a separate module. This site is written using react( I implemented the universal react web-app(SSR with reusing same react code on the client and on the server).

I implemented a emails constructor using React on frontend


I like Typescript because it guarantees a good code style and strict types for such liberal language as JavaScript. I can write good readable code, use all the newest features and use OOP when I write on the Typescript.

I have a repo with a small example of code on Typescript using Koa and Mysql


It's hard to imagine a modern development without a git. I know and use git-flow and semantic versioning.

Test-Driven Development

Since I started to write tests and use test-driven development I can't develop another way. Tests help me to write only necessary code and be sure that the code is working right. It's a very useful skill for me. When I code on PHP I use the PHPUnit and Mockery, on JavaScript - mocha and Sinon.

I follow the SOLID and DRY. I'm sure that I don't need to use OOP in each case. I can use functional programming or OOP when it fits better.

It's better to learn the language instead of the framework. And I think that the developer should choose the right tool for the specific task.
