rexim thinking

I wanted to write this post a long time ago, but most of the time I was just busy either working or procrastinating. I know almost nobody reads this blog, and that's ok, 'cause I'm not sure I'm able to write anything interesting. So, I'm writing this post only for myself. I like my blog as a place where I can put my thoughts for further analysis in the future.

Almost 4 months ago I moved to Novosibirsk. It is not too far from my previous location (Novokuznetsk, almost 400 kilometers away) but still. :) There were many reasons for this. I'm not going to describe all of them, just a couple that I consider the most important for me.

The first reason is that there are very few good software development companies in Novokuznetsk. There is 4geo and this is probably the only choice you have if you want to learn something as a software developer. In contrast, Novosibirsk (especially Akademgorodok) is a huge hub of awesome IT and software companies.

The second reason is that I really love Akademgorodok. I started to love it when I was a student and participated in different programming contests and activities there. I had met many nice and smart people, so I decided that I want to live there.

So, what's next? My current plan is to keep doing what I'm doing.

I love to create things. I've found an awesome job here at Xored. This company is all about making useful things and I really like to work here. But most of the things I'm working on are not useful for myself. I mean, I'm a developer, but not a user. I'd like to work on a product which I can use too. This usually means contributing to existing Open Source projects or starting your own one. I have an idea for a project, but I need to prepare my theoretical background for it.

Sometimes I make small contributions to Horta and want to learn how to draw. I really miss my musical instruments playings (especially night ones with a MIDI-keyboard, which I'm not able to bring here yet). But vocal percussion saves the situation. :)
