Yes, man! PolyITAN-1 – the first Ukrainian nanosatellite is on orbit!

Nanosatellite in the development of which I participated, was put into orbit. On the night of June 20, the first Ukrainian nanosatellite PolyITAN-1, created in the KPI, was launched into earth orbit. Nanosatellites are a class of small artificial earth satellites, the creation of which has become possible due to the development of micromythiatrics and nanotechnology. Now they are increasingly used for various studies, explains the press service of the Ministry of Education and Science. In the NTUU KPI was created nanosatellite in format “Cubesat”, weighing about 1 kg and 10x10x10cm. Sources: http://mon.gov.ua/ua/news/34662-pershiy-ukrayinskiy-nanosuputnik–na-orbiti;...

Meeting of Habrahabr Readers

Meeting of Habrahabr Readers

The meetup of readers of the Habrahabr community, popular with IT-specialists, was held On December 8. The event was very informal. Beer, peanuts, french fries… and technical presentations: Dmitry Yahov “ITIL, Methodology of IT-management Processes Within the Company”; Andrew Kobylianskii “Multidimensional Computer Graphics”; Sergei Gnidko “Work without Working Capital”; Alexander Shpak “Flexible Development Methodology. Who and why Invented them?”; Igor Petrushenko “Web Forms and Online Databases Constructor”. There were quite a few programmers at the meeting; it turned out that Habrahabr readers are mostly system administrators and integrators. It was a nice surprise for me to meet @RReverser  (you can find his blog here); we talked about Windows 8, Windows Phone and other cute .NET-stuff. Also, the organizers played beer barrels in the most honest random way (Anatoly, who was sitting at our table, was the...

IT Jam 2012 Report

IT Jam 2012 Report

September 1 is not only the day of knowledge, peonies, and teachers, but it is also a day of fun for more than 3,000 IT specialists in the NSC “Olimpiiskii“. Truly speaking, I have not seen anywhere else such a long queue for registration. When registering, in addition to cute notebooks-pens-markers-pins-magnets, you could also get a card of the first off-line social network, RFIDLE. The card is linked to my Facebook page, and with the help of it, I can give likes, add friends and upload photos using special terminals. The idea is excellent, but unfortunately, terminals often denied. In a couple of days, RFIDLE sent me a questionnaire by mail, and it turned out that we became participants of a beta testing, so let’s hope that developers are already fixing the system. “We are here to celebrate!” said IT Jam slogans. On two stages (under the titles “New ideas and technologies” and “From vision to implementation”) technical gurus told stories of their success in a simple and humorous way. Apart from Ukrainian speakers Max Istchenko (founder of the well-known DOU Ukrainian developer community) and Michael Zavileiskii (General Manager of the DataArt company), there were also foreign guests: Christopher Marsh (technical developer at AKQA), Greg Young (independent consultant and entrepreneur), Torben Maygaard (Ciklum founder) and others. Companies raffled off licenses (I, for example, wanted to win a license from JetBrains for Resharper, but alas, failed to), cups, T-shirts, Lego; held competitions and polls (DataArt gave everybody beans in bags for voting; some members even took them home, maybe in order to plant). But I was lucky enough to win a 20% discount on the preparation for the Microsoft certification in the training center, which is also good. Around the pavilion, there were Chucks Norris with jokes and a different stuff for entertainment. But the most important thing was going on in the community spots, where developers of different areas were communicating and exchanging contacts. Ironically, I almost missed the .NET lectures but had a great time with the guys from Podcasting. It was very entertaining to learn from the “inside” how to create podcasts, as I often listen to Mikhail Marchenko and to his podcast “Frankly about IT careerism”....
