My name is Eduards Sizovs /ɛdwərd sɪzov/. I am a software developer, trainer, speaker, and conference organizer from Riga, Latvia. I am 32 years old.
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:
- Effective Coding Principles and Patterns in Java 15
- Leadership and Soft Skills for Developers
- The Principal Developer
- eXtreme Agility
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).
