First week in France

Logo dela Republique francaise

Well, I did it. I managed to sign all possible and impossible papers, to explain all real facts for stupid accountants and other fat-ass jerks in the department of bureaucracy and finally to get my visa (that actually was the easiest part).

Now I am in France. Actually I planned to post something just after my arrival. Things, however, went independently on my plan so I had to follow them and to forget about free time for a week.

Hello world!

I began to think about my own blog approximately a year ago. However, I didn’t create it until this day because I did not know what exactly¬†should I post to it.

Now I am a lecturer at Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics and the blog is the perfect way to publish the information I can’t include to my lectures for some reasons.

Of course the blog isn’t limited for students audience and I hope it will be interesting for any IT people.
