WordCamp Moscow 2016 Recap

WordCamp Moscow 2016 was held this weekend in the amazing Digital October Center. Fourteen speakers from Russia, Ukraine and Lithuania, two tracks with great content on design, programming, blogging, business and of course SEO. Huge props to Dmitry Mayorov for taking on the lead organizer role and making the best out of it. We had a little over 200 attendees this year, and the event was quite a...

WordPress Meetup in Moscow

The Moscow WordPress Meetup group is growing, and this weekend we had three sessions and over 30 attendees! We finally seem to have settled with the venue, and started working towards a WordCamp Moscow this year.
Fun fact: next meetup (in March) we will turn one year old.

The Moscow WordPress Meetup is this Saturday

The Moscow WordPress Meetup is this Saturday. If you’re in Moscow, come join us for a few hours of geek talk about WordPress. We have several presentations scheduled, as well as good coffee, stickers and buttons. Despite the Moscow weather recently, I feel that Saturday will be a great day.

WordPress Moscow Meetup #6

The sixth WordPress Meetup in Moscow was held on Saturday. Not as much attendees, due to many group members being on vacation and such, but the meetup was quite productive. We spoke mainly about themes development, and the _s theme.
We also talked briefly about WordCamp Moscow, which will be held in 2013.

WordPress Moscow Meetup #5

WordPress 3.0, Social Media in Russia, Hiring & Coffee

So, there’s quite some interesting stuff going on around here and let’s of course begin with WordPress. Yes, WordPress 3.0 has been released, some blog posts of mine got even more visibility and I’ve been interviewed on the WordCast Conversations show – thank you so much @kymhuynh and @lorelleonwp. I don’t know when the show will air, but Kym promised to let me know...

AR-600 in Moscow

Okay, these are kind of old from an exhibition in Moscow in like December 2008. Previously hosted by Flickr, and today I decided to have duplicates here, ’cause Flickr will not display more than 200 photos from my photostream, so here’s probably a safer place (unless my hosting provider messes up). This is an android robot, similar to Honda ASIMO. It’s called i-Van and the model...

Back to Moscow

Woah, that was one wonderful trip. The only thing that sucked about it is that there’s no Internet in Magnitogorsk (1500 km away from Moscow). They only say that there’s 3G mobile Internet, ADSL and 2 Mbps broadband. My cellphone’s 50 kbps GPRS was faster that that broadband! I tweeted out a message or two – that’s the only thing I managed to do next to some ICQ and...
