Hi, I am Victor Zakharov, also known as Neolisk. I am a 31 years old full stack software developer with 11 years of full time programming experience, with expertise in Angular on the front end and .NET on the back end. On this website I am going to share hard to find solutions as well as personal thoughts on software development industry. There will be source code, ideas, concrete solutions and development process related talks. No ads, no affiliates, only facts or honest opinions.


I am a Microsoft certified web developer (MCSD) since 2013, recertified in 2016.

Competitive Programming

At university I took part in almost all programming related competitions (mostly ACM), and placed in top 1-3 among same year Comp Sci students. I competed as a team member in the national team final of Ukraine, and 2 times as a team lead for university team. Below is a certificate of archievement from 2006 (Vinnytsia, Ukraine).


Years later, while working full time as a software developer, I took my competitive spirit to online communities.

Developer Community

I am a trusted user and moderator on Stack Overflow since 2011, the number one source for most programming related questions, backed up by a large development community around the world. You get moderator permissions at 10K reputation. Have a well research question that you do not know the answer for? Ask it on Stack Overflow, and get an answer in minutes or hours, depending on complexity and popularity of the tech stack.

About This Site

neolisk.blog (the site you are currently looking at) is a spiritual successor to neolisk.com, my old technical blog created in 2009, which was built with the old google sites platform, very limiting (100MB of space) and with layout and formatting issues as soon as contents gets large. It did not support code color highlight, so I had to use external websites to produce raw HTML.

neolisk.blog is powered by Hugo and zzo theme. Content is created using Markdown and compiled by Hugo into a static website running on plain HTML, CSS and Javascript. Its Git repo is hooked up to continuous integration and automatic deployment using Netlify. From commit and push to deployment it takes <30 seconds to see live updates. It even supports SSL/HTTPS. I tried my best to keep supporting IE11 and mobile, despite the limited audience from these channels. Let me know if you find any readability issues on portable devices.
