¡Hola! Hello! Привет!
Welcome to my blog! My name is Yuri Mednikov, and people call me a tech entrepreneur and software engineer. Although I always consider myself as an eternal student, because in our industry continuos learning is about 100% of success.
I started to program about 2003-2004 (I was 11/12 y.o), when my father bought me my first PC (as I remember, it was P4/512MB/GF5600), from MS Visual Basic 6.0. At that time I also practiced with Pascal and played with Flash (it was called Macromedia Flash these days).
Some facts about me:
- B.Sc (Hons) in Computing
- Professional (=paid) software engineer since 2013
- Key tech: Java, Scala, Vert.x, MySQL, Linux
- Currently CEO at Codesity OÜ
- Speak Russian (honestly, B1-B2, even I’m a native speaker), English, Spanish, Czech
- Hobbies: travel, study new languages (both human and programming), running
The most effective ways to learn new stuff is to teach others, correct? 🙂 That was a reason to start this website. It is my side project, that means I work on it in my free time, however my goal is to publish 1 article a week. But my priority is quality over quantity.
This blog is not the unique place you can read my writings. I also publish on dev.to and do some guest blogging for other Java + programming resources. Also, don’t forget to follow my twitter:
