Rishat Muhametshin

A Meteor + React guy with focus on rapid launch

Atlantic Time (Canada) (-04:00)
I'm a full-time freelance programmer, occasional open source contributor and local developer community maintainer. I use Meteor and React with modern Javascript, Babel and Webpack, and focus on bringing a product to the public market. My core domain expertise is transportation and logistics, however I've been revolving around AI, information architecture and HCIs recently.
21 React
18 JavaScript
8 Ecmascript 6
5 Node.js
4 Redux
4 Meteor
Meteor expert help Meteor - 4 years experience
I've been using Meteor first for small R&D projects and then, after it's become more mature, for real-life production-ready apps. Meteor is a great framework for those who want to reach the MVP milestone quickly, for it's a full-stack framework, with built-in CLI tools, perfect Mongo support, tons of useful packages and Galaxy, where you can deploy your app with just a few commands. I'd recommend Meteor to anyone who has a strong vision and needs to launch quickly.
Reactjs expert help React - 2 years experience
I love React and the way it evolves, it's all about FP, statelessness, functional purity and reactivity. Among many app state patterns, I have chosen Redux, since once configured, it's clean and concise and the state transition flow is so straightforward. I'd definitely recommend React for the front-end. It's way more powerful, and code is significantly more reusable, than it looks.
No icon Ecmascript 6 - 2 years experience
ES6 changed the game. I use async/await, generators and decorators a lot, let alone object spread and destructuring assignment, for cleaner code that anybody can read and understand at once, fluently, without pain. ES6 is just what every Javascript programmer needs to know by default these days, and the deeper the better.
No icon Lodash - 3 years experience
I just use lodash a lot. Even if it's not pure functional programming (no lazy evaluation, no currying by default), the toolset is just great. I believe Lodash is the first step in transition from old-school Javascript, with its prototypes and obscure wrappings, to modern, clean and functional Javascript.
Javascript expert help JavaScript - 5 years experience
JavaScript is one of strongest areas of expertise I have, and the language I use longest. I stick to using modern tools that save time and make the development process cleaner and more productive. Among them, ES6, Babel and Webpack are my favorites.
No icon ClojureScript - 1 year experience
I use ClojureScript for side projects and for academic purposes, i.e. non-production, ad hoc things that test hypotheses and allow build things fast but in scalable fashion. I mostly use Reagent with Hiccups template engine, it's quite simple, compared to Om, and lets produce deliverables fast.
Mongo db expert help MongoDB - 4 years experience
Mongo is my document storage of choice. I use it from its early days, first with Python and then as a part of Meteor core bundle.
Html css expert help HTML/CSS - 6 years experience
I'm a huge fan of responsive web design and mobile-first approach. I used to use Twitter Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation frameworks in the past, for they provided some nice responsiveness out of the box, but these days I use Flexbox and a little pinch of patience to implement beautiful responsive layouts myself.

Yes I am back! He is very consistent with helping students. He is also very patient. Sometimes not everything is gonna work. But he will try to figure things out with you. That's awesome!
Tiffany Lo Aug 07, 2016

I'm beyond impressed at how he was able to explain things to me while showing me what I needed to do. Very professional and patient, and was able to execute under the estimated 2 hours. It was an hour and change. Now I am able to catch up on few other class works I fell behind in properly completing. I will be back for more React and Ecmascript 6 help! If he knows the tech and I need help with it. He'll be my go to for much needed assistance. Thank you so very much! :)
Tiffany Lo Aug 02, 2016

Incredible! I plan on working with him in the future. He truly know his stuff.

Good meteor developer, recommend
Flavio Carvalho Jul 06, 2016

Straight to the point and could explain to me (a react/javascript novice) what was happening. Thanks!
Rasmus Sjørslev Jul 05, 2016

Super helpful. Found a bug that would have taken me a long time
patrick iwanicki Jun 21, 2016

Great like always! One good think about Rishat is that you learn also while he research for weird bugs. Just watching how he do, its already super helpful, moreover he explain exactly what's going on so you can do a great pair coding session!
giorgia sambrotta Jun 20, 2016

Once again Rishat was very helpful. This time we found an annoying bug but Rishat didn't finish the session before it was fixed. i'm grateful for this :) Also, i learn a lot like always pair-coding with him.
giorgia sambrotta Jun 13, 2016

As common saying say: Second time is always better then first, today session was great. We cover many many different topics and i solved all my issues, even the philosophical ones :) Rishat is very fast and go straight to the point!
giorgia sambrotta May 11, 2016

Rishat was very helpful, we went directly to the point, he gave me good tips on how to further develop my app and he give me a good overview on different solutions i could use. Now i have the right input to keep coding!
giorgia sambrotta May 04, 2016

Great mentor! super helpful.
Jennifer Mutasa Apr 12, 2016

Of the 4-5 mentors I contacted, Rishat was the nicest and speediest with his help. I asked "silly" questions, and he was very patient.

Rishat is a great mentor. Explains what he is doing all throughout the session.
Garry Chan Feb 15, 2016

Rishat is great at debugging React and Redux apps. He used the console log to break down every detail of my code in action. We couldn't solve this latest issue, but he pointed me in the right direction.
David Ewers Feb 13, 2016

Rishat patiently looked through my code, helped me find the problems, and showed me how to fix things. He got me over the hurdle. He has very good understanding of React, Redux, and Meteor. I will call on him again for certain.
David Ewers Feb 12, 2016
