Hi. 👋

My name is Eduards Sizovs /ɛdwərd sɪzov/. I am a software developer, trainer, speaker, and conference organizer from Riga, Latvia. I am 33 years old.

It's me in 2019.

I’ve been involved in enterprise software development for over 15 years as a developer, architect, CTO, IT director, and independent consultant. Today, through training and mentoring I help teams establish good coding culture, accelerate development process, and improve hiring process.

I lead DevTernity conference, where we turn developers into architects and engineering leaders. It has been recognized as one of the best developer conferences in Europe.

I personally spoke at 103 events Worldwide, including conferences with 1000+ attendees. You can see me in action:

I organize certification training and masterclasses for software engineers:

Attendees say that my training is always practical, inspiring, and high-energy. You can hire me to run a training for your team.

When I have time, I contribute to open-source. I built a number of OSS projects such as dev.events, mustread.tech, and PipelinR. Among the most successful creations is dev.tube – a crowd-sourced hub for developer videos. I didn’t expect it to become so popular.

I’m a certified Enterprise Architect (OCMEA), certified Scrum Master, certified Product Owner, certified Project Management Professional (PMP), and ICF certified coach. I have two degrees in Computer Science (programming and software architecture) and international MBA degree (IT process organization, leadership, management, recruiting, remote work).
