Nice to meet you!
I'm Dmitry Jemerov, a software developer originally from St.Petersburg, Russia, now living in Munich, Germany.
I've spent most of my career working at JetBrains. I started as the lead developer of Omea, a now-defunct information management tool built with .NET. Then I moved to work on IntelliJ IDEA and IntelliJ Platform-based IDEs. Among other things, I was the original creator and lead developer of PyCharm.
I also spent a year at Google, working on Cloud Source Repositories, Cloud Debugger and other projects related to developer tooling on Google Cloud Platform.
After I returned to JetBrains, I spent some time as the lead of the team working on the IntelliJ IDEA plugin for Kotlin, and then switched to product management and product leadership roles. My current role as of 2023 is the Head of Product for the IntelliJ department, responsible for the product strategy of all the IDEs based on the IntelliJ Platform.
Some of my personal projects include:
I'm one of the authors of Kotlin in Action, an introduction book on Kotlin. As of this writing, the 2nd edition of the book is in the works, but I'm no longer involved in it.

I've made a fair amount of conference presentations over the years. Here are some of them:
