Hi! I’m Artëm.
I’m passionate about computers, arts, and writing. I grew up in Russia, where I majored in applied math and computer security. Since 2013, my wife Julia and I live in (mostly) sunny Philadelphia, where I work at Betterment.
On this website, I rant about programming and publish notes on personal productivity and pop culture. In case you’re looking for a place to start, my most popular post is “The Language of Programming”. Or you can just play tetris.
Anykey: my first native macOS app
Almost by accident, I built a macOS app for binding hotkeys to shell commands. This is a story about it.
Makeshift image sharing using Alfred
Another addition to my Alfred workflows: a CloudApp-like image sharing support.
Easy Calendar navigation with Alfred
Using Alfred’s Script Filters to quickly jump to calendar events or relevant links.
I’m playing indie games again
I found a purpose for my Nintendo Switch: catching up on all the great indie games I’d skip on other platforms.
Minimalism and music
Not all complexity is incidental. In music, it takes a trained ear to appreciate the loss.
The saving joy of Persona 5
My 110 hours with a game I thought I’d dislike.
My wife Julia is a freelance designer and illustrator. Together we built a website for our wedding day in 2013. She is always on a lookout for interesting projects. You can marvel at her work and get in touch by visiting madebyjulia.com.
