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.

Feel free to contact me using any means mentioned here.


At Google

AppEngine (Google Cloud Platform)

I worked on modernizing Google AppEngine’s infrastructure — for more flexibility and performance.

Chrome OS Enterprise features

I worked on adding advanced access controls for enterprise Chromebook fleet administrators to the Linux virtualization subsystem.

In the KDE Community

KDE Russia

I promote KDE software in Russia by writing articles and how-tos, translating news, participating in local events and administrating social network pages and chats. I also develop a Telegram bot for group management and news posting and the website.

Plasma Mobile & Halium

I work with the Plasma Mobile and Halium projects to help build a free user-friendly mobile OS for everyone. This involves hardware adaptation and application development.

Kaidan is a user-friendly cross-platform XMPP-based chat built on top of KDE’s Kirigami UI framework. I authored some contributions to the visual components, including a refreshed logo, and extended operating system support.

I am a grand prize winner of the Google Code-in 2016 contest. Together with other fellow open source contributors I visited the Google HQ in Mountain View, CA. It was an amazing experience! 🙂

NEERC 2017-2019

ICPC (The International Collegiate Programming Contest) is an algorithmic programming contest for college students.
NEERC (Northern Eurasia Programming Contest) is now the ICPC finals for Northern Eurasia. It is held annually at ITMO University, the lovely place where I study.
In 2019 I participated in NEERC for the third time as a Technical Committee Assistant.
