Howdy! Name’s Julik. Ok, strictly speaking it is much longer but I never use the full one since it fell victim to two successive romanizations. I hail from the Russian default city but have been living in the Netherlands for over a decade.

I have been making things on the web since roughly 2001, and this very website is something that used to be called “a blog” before the walled gardens took over.

I’ve worked as a visual effects artist for about 8 years, so I am one of those software engineers who also have an IMDB page - how cool is that?

Currently I work at WeTransfer - although beware that opinions on this site do not represent the ones of my employer (stronger even - they often are contrarian, that is deliberate).

If you are looking for the code I wrote, you will be able to find it at my Github page as well as the guerilla-di GH page and the WeTransfer GH organisation. I’ve also released quite a few Ruby gems which have been moderately successful. Please do use them if you need to, few things make me so happy as knowing people are using what I have created.

I’ve also given some talks at various events and conferences, primarily ones related to the Ruby programming language.
