@mapbox @Leaflet

Hi! I'm Vladimir Agafonkin.

I'm a software engineer. I created Leaflet, the number one library for interactive web maps, and maintain 50+ other open source projects with a focus on algorithms, computational geometry and performance. I'm building the future of maps at Mapbox. Here are a few of my best tech articles:

I'm a musician. I write songs, play guitar and sing in Obiymy Doschu. If you like beautiful, evocative, multilayered rock music with string arrangements, check out our last album.

I'm a father to beautiful 6-year-old twin girls, I'm happily married and live in Kyiv, Ukraine. I love photography, strength training, martial arts, baking, reading sci-fi and fantasy, and exploring quiet parks. You can find tidbits of my life on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
