About me

in a couple of sentences… or more 😜

My name is Dmitry Sharabin and I wear many hats. My day job as a freelance educator is to help companies to develop courses and organize educational events for their employees. I'm an active member of a team developing a CMS platform for a large account in Russia. Former team lead of the content team.

As of 2018, I made front-end web development a part of my life. I strongly believe in open source, and have become a passionate advocate and contributor to Mavo. Mavo is a JavaScript implementation of an HTML-based language for creating reactive web applications by writing HTML. It is developed in the Haystack Group at MIT CSAIL and led by Lea Verou. Since 2019, I have written a host of plugins, documentation, and made numerous demos.

Being a teacher of Maths and Informatics by profession, I've been teaching people Informatics for almost two decades. I'm a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) and expert in Microsoft Office suite (MOS Master).

I equally adore sharing knowledge and helping people solve their issues and achieve their goals and writing code, designing and developing web apps.

If you would like to know a bit more about me and my work, keep scrolling. 😉 If you prefer something more formal, here is my CV.

Mavo Plugins

Iʼm continually trying to bring more awesomeness to my beloved Mavo by teaching it new tricks via plugins: either by developing my own (see below) or by contributing to the existing ones.

  • Autoload teaches Mavo how to load all the needed plugins automatically.
  • Share allows end-users to share their data via system clipboard, email, contacts or messaging applications, and Bluetooth or Wi-Fi channels.
  • Firebase Firestore lets authors bring into play all the powers of Firebase in storing and syncing data.
  • Google Sheets allows authors to use Google spreadsheets as a data source and storage.
  • Google Calendar allows authors to integrate Google calendars (private, shared, public) into their apps and perform CRUD operations with events in them.
  • Cropper lets the user edit (crop, scale, rotate, flip) an image in place and upload it to the chosen backend.
  • Chart lets visualize data in Mavo apps with animated, customizable, and responsive charts.
  • MathJax lets authors add beautiful math to their apps.
  • Russian Locale translates all Mavo UI to Russian.
