About me

My name is Ilya Bizyaev, I am a Computer Science and Applied Mathematics student at ITMO University in St. Petersburg, Russia. I’m keen on designing, programming and deploying various (mostly open-source) software in my spare time. Some of my skills and projects are listed below.

Currently I am working on a user-friendly cross-platform XMPP client and a convergent user interface framework.

Feel free to contact me using any means mentioned here.
