🔹First acquaintance with IT

It’s hard to tell the success story of exactly how I got into IT. I was lucky with my father. He almost always knew the answers to any questions before the Internet and Wikipedia appeared. At the same time, almost never directly answering my questions, he forced me to look for answers myself. Thanks to him, we got our first computer way back in 1988, when I was in the second grade. It was BC 0010-01 with the Basic interpreter sewn into it. I rewrote the first programs on BC from books. Later, there were programming courses that included Iskra-1030 and ES 1840 on KR1810VM86 — an analog of Intel 8086.

Then other courses at the Vorontsov Palace, to which I went after school across the city. The first modem and access to the city chat (without Internet access). First job as a programmer in the ninth grade. And twenty years of engineering with a smooth transition to management. My story is about having a burning interest in computers and automation before it became mainstream.

 

🔹Your role in Odesa IT Family?

Intellias company representative. It seems to me that the appeal of Family is that we are all equal and there are no specific roles. Roles appear and are performed as needed. Family unites IT representatives with rich experience. And there is a special beauty in how we interact and how we can support each other.

 

🔹What does the cluster bring to your company?

Exchange of experience and additional channel of participation in public projects.

 

🔹What plans/projects do you plan to implement in 2023 at Family?

Everything that supports and develops the industry in the region, exchange of experience and support of small businesses, training of new specialists.
