Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I'm Yaroslav. I write software for a living, and also as a hobby. Currently working on software for LTE and 5G NR technologies.

I also sometimes post things that I think are interesting or of value to this site, although maybe not as often as I'd like. Feel free to take a look around. This is what you can find on my website:


My thoughts on different matters and some things that I would like to remember.

It's time to use crypto 2022-04-15

Nevertheless, recent events have shown us how important this technology actually is and why it is better than the alternative.

Potato Draniki

A classic recipe in eastern Slavic countries, typically eaten for breakfast, as a side dish or a for a light lunch. Similar to American hash browns or other potato pancake recipes. Potatoes are truly the most versatile vegetable there is; better than potatoes only meat.
