Andrey Turbov's Profile


ITMO University




Saint-Petersburg, Russian Federation



In 2013 I graduated local school with thought in mind about becoming astrophysicist by going to the Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University, which I did. I came up with this idea during my education in the evening astronomical school, organized by the President of the Scientific-Educational Union "Earth and Universe" Alexander Tron. I have visited few scientific student conferences with presentation of my project about problems of constructing space-elevator with endpoint at the geostationary orbit. The largest of these conferences was held at the closet city of Sarov, not far from Nizhny Novgorod, where during Cold War nuclear bombs were constructed. But, after university admission, I decided that this field did not suit me well, so I dropped out. Next year I tried myself at programming, which I liked much more and started studying at SUAI (Saint Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation). Unfortunately, due to the family circumstances, I dropped out this one too. But programming and computer science fields are still of my interest, so I keep pushing my efforts towards becoming proficient software developer by studying it myself. So here I am. Also, I am still planning to get higher education at CS field.


System administration, Python, Django, JavaScript, ReactJS, technical problem-solving.
