Polina Gurtovaya

Company: Recraft

She does the frontend at Recraft. Fosters a sense of beauty, because every application must be beautiful:

  • With a contract and convenient scheme (that's why Polina often uses GraphQL).
  • Fast (so she can compress pictures and videos in many ways).
  • Good at solving its task (if needed, Polina can drag in the right pieces in C or Rust, compiling them into Wasm).
  • And most importantly - user-friendly :).

It's interesting to use all the power of the web platform to create really useful applications. And Polina also likes ML and drawing dragons.
