Who am I - What do I do - What do I like

Who I am

My name is David Tchekachev (a.k.a Tchekda on the Internet) and I'm a 21 year-old computer science student at EPITA, a 5-year engineering university. Currently seeking a Software Engineering internship from September 2024 until February 2025

In the past years I developed multiple websites and solutions for companies that had specific needs to computerize and automate some repetitive tasks, which led me recently to register my own company as a freelancer. Solving problems in a creative way is what drives me to keep learning and improving my skills.

I also engage in sport and volunteering activities in order to build new skills that I can use for my professional experience. Keeping myself busy to make myself better and more valuable is one of my most important goals.

Soft skills

How do I work with other people - What makes me different

What makes me better at what I do

  • My experience in ice-hockey refereeing forced me to master some skills such as communication, conflict management, teamwork, stress management, decision-making, openness to criticism, leadership and many more because I need to take decisions in matter of seconds while managing players that are competing at full speed. I also need to rely on my colleagues as much as they rely on me to take the best decision from the point of view I have and take a step back to quickly analyze tense situations.
  • As a freelance, working with real clients taught me some other skills which helped me gain a lot of experience, for example adaptability, leadership, creativity, time management, project organization, specification formalization and problem-solving are skills that helped me a lot to successfully answer client's needs by providing custom solutions that fit perfectly the requirements provided.
  • As a team manager, I also discovered a lot of new aspects that are helping me efficiently lead my teams by developing a variety of skills like project management, collaboration, decision making, communication, leadership and many others valuable keys to create the best environment for my colleagues and I to work in.
  • Being curious is keeping me interested in the new tools available on the market that could allow me to build new projects in the future. When I want to build something, this allows me to take a step back to research what is already available out-of-the-box to use, instead of building everything from scratch, and then make the best recommandation to my clients in order to have the most time-and-cost efficient proposal.

What am I doing else than programming

What I'm doing for others and our society

I got introduced to programming by volunteers on meetups in Paris and, now that I have gained some technical experience, it became important to me to give this opportunity back to the community.

I'm the most proud of the volunteering I'm doing at CoderDojo Paris (see picture) where, each month, I'm mentoring a dozen kids into discovering programing. It's the same community that taught me the basics and gave me the passion I have for computers.

Not only in programming but also in sports, after a dozen years being an ice-hockey player I became a referee to stay at a high-level of competition and engage with players. As an ice-hockey referee, I worked hard to climb the steps to the National level (highest level in France). Working with professional players is very challenging and pushing me to work even harder to provide them with a safe environment to play and enjoy.

Deloitte Luxembourg

June 2023 - Aug 2023

During a summer internship at Deloitte Luxembourg, I lead the development of an internal application in coordination with the UI/UX team while reporting to the company's stakeholders. This project was a great opportunity to learn how to work in a big company and how to manage a project from A to Z.
Also, I had the opportunity to drive some research on Generative AI and how it could be used in such big company.
