About me

Hello! I’m Roman “Megus” Petrov, a software developer and musician from Russia.

I have more than 15 years of professional experience in software development. My current main areas of expertise are:

  • iOS native development (Swift and Objective-C)
  • Web frontend development with React
  • Defold game engine

I’ve started learning programming on 8-bit computer ZX Spectrum when I was 6. In early 2000’s I was pretty active at ZX demoscene.

My main hobby is music. I’m a self taught music composer, performer and sound engineer. My music background also starts with ZX Spectrum, I composed a quite lot of chiptune music. I still love chiptune and continue to compose music that incorporates its elements. I’m a big fan of ethnic musical instruments and synthesizers. I have a collection of ethnic instruments and wish to have a collection of synthesizers as well.
