About Me

Hey, my name is Paul Mineev.

I’m hacking my way through life. Sometimes I consult companies about tech-stack and review their projects. I write about development, web specs, and about problems I faced and how to solve them.

I have been participating in conferences, meetups, webinars and so on as a speaker and spoken about development, team formation and project managment from dev perspective. Also, I’m always happy to be a mentor or a judge on hackathons. I already took part in more than 10 hacks such as McHacks, SF Hacks, and LA Hacks.



I’m working on client-side part of the project since start of 2019. I work on implementation of new functional, refactoring and updating of the UI.

Spotify Badge

Once I realized Spotify has API I’m trying to utilize it. Since GitHub added Profile I wanted to share what is playing in my Spotify there. It led to this project.


I joined the project with target of optimizations bundle size and reduce number of dependencies. As goal we reached 90+ WebVitals score.


I like when cool projects have fancy design. Connected with that I created logo and web-site for the project.
