Sergiy Dybskiy (aka 416serg) is a full stack JavaScript developer currently living in London, Ontario, Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦. He was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ and moved to Canada in 2007. During his high school years he worked in retail first selling custom closet solutions, then moving on to shoes and shoecare. He learnt a lot about customer service and providing a great customer experience while excelling in these roles and becoming the number one part time sales employee for Aldo Group in 2013 worldwide. He studied Computer Science at the University of Toronto for a year, after which he decided to drop out take a break because the curriculum was heavily focused on the theories and concepts rather than practical implementation and building applications.

He started out doing freelance work in Wordpress where he learned a lot about SEO and improved his customer service skills by communicating with clients. He is still doing a bit of freelance on the side but has switched to learning full stack web development and is constantly learning to improve his craft.


He's been working with JavaScript for over 4 years now. Started off with Meteor using Handlebars but then switched to ReactJS and never looked back βš›οΈ. He's deployed Meteor applications to Galaxy, as well as bundled them as plain NodeJS applications and sent them over to AWS. MongoDB is the database he's worked with the most. Currently he's learning GraphQL as well as implementing it with Apollo and Yoga. He's passionate about learning new things and is always up for a challenge.


Currently he's the CTO and co-founder of Ruutly where they're changing the way candidates should interact with job postings making them more interactive and collecting data around how well your job postings are performing. They also built Raise Your Flag where people without a post-secondary diploma can learn about career paths that start at an entry level position, but then transition to a more meaningful career.


Sergiy likes attending meetups in the JS/GraphQL space to chat with awesome people and learn. He's spoken at a few meetups in the past (you can contact him to learn more if you are interested in inviting him to a lunch-and-learn/conferrence/meetup).

He is passionate about cars and frequently watches Doug Demuro's channel on Youtube so he built an SPA to visualize the Doug Score: https://dougscore.netlify.com/ using react-create-app and Google Sheets API.

When he is not in front of his computer, he likes going to the gym, playing soccer and snowboarding.
