About the founder, Alex

Alex Ivanovs, Founder

My initial encounter with computing occurred in the late 1990s, my neighbor’s dad had a Win 95 machine that he’d let us play with once in a while. With the advent of 2000 millennium, I was already fairly familiar with various systems (thanks to my school network), which then led to a natural interest in programming (to be fair, there wasn’t much else happening on the Web back then!). I began with Visual Basic and Perl (rip to both), gaining a foundational understanding of software development.

The release of WordPress in 2003 was a key moment for me, as it prompted me to establish my first online blog and dive into PHP and server-side management. Over the years I got more and more interested in writing and building online projects, so much so that I spend more time writing these days than I do coding. Nevertheless, the passion is there and I highly doubt it will ever be extinguished.

In 2015, I was invited to come and join the Huffington Post team to help them build their “Code” column, which lasted for about 2-ish years in total. That’s also when I got to work with other editorials such as Entrepreneur and TheNextWeb. From thereon I have been juggling various projects and focusing mostly on creating informative platforms that are based on interests close to me.

What does Stack Diary mean? In the tech world, a “stack” typically refers to a set of software products and technologies used to build a complete application. In this context, “diary” means a repository of the said stack. It’s a fairly low-level name, but I was never a domain hoarder so I just went with what was available. I still think it’s a good name.

What about your socials? The links at the header and footer are the places where you’ll get the most frequent updates from me, but you can also check me out on LinkedIn if you like.
