About me

Hi there! My name is Evgeny and I'm a programmer. I'm 29, I like noisy companies, skating, and pelmeni. I'd like to change the world :)

I was born in 1987, in a small belarusian city called Slutsk. I was dreaming about computers since my childhood. My dream became true when I was in seventh grade. My parents bought me a PC in 2000, and I thought that it was the best moment of my life. I played games just a bit. In the first year of my computer life, I had started trying to write programs in Delphi, and then in C++ a little bit later. It was clear for me that it is the thing that I was dreaming for.

In 2005, I entered the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics, so I had moved to Minsk. In the third year, I discovered a passion for low level programming and x86 assembly language. Sometimes I work on such projects days and nights continuously, and only after long period of time I can return to normal life :)

Nickname

My nickname is VEG, and I like when people use it in informal conversations. It's an acronym of my family name, given name and patronymic. The right pronunciation is [veg], not [veʤ]. The second and third sounds have to be pronounced like in the word “beg”, and definitely not like in the word “vegetable”. My nickname has nothing in common with vegetarianism, and I'm not a vegetarian (as some people asked me about it). Sometimes I can't use “VEG” as a username on some websites because this nickname is too short and it is often not allowed to use. In such cases I use “vrubleg” as my username, which is just an extended form of my nickname.

English

English isn't my native language, so please excuse me for any mistakes. I hope that my English is a little bit better than translation from the Google Translate :) Feel free to contact me if you would like to help me to improve quality of English on some pages of this blog.
