The other day in the office with a gorgeous view full of sunlight, I was passionately stubbled on our metrics. I thought about statistics about how cool they might be looking on the screen. Imagine extracting all data from different sources like Github, some trending messages from Twitter and unique visitors of your WordPress blog. Then imagine showing it in one place, like some big TV screen for everybody, motivating all of your team members. – No sooner said than done! I thought.
Besides computer science, I like psychological experiments, scientific analysis, and conclusion made upon the historical data. I think it’s absolutely adorable to learn some new facts standing on true events. Eventually, you may come to the thoughtful consequence. Does it make sense to buy this house? Is it a good idea to own British Pound?

In my youth age, I have traveled across the Ukraine and have met different people, have learned different views and enlarged my knowledge about my own culture and its history.
After when I turned 25 years old, I took the decision to move more than 600 kilometers away to the beautiful city named Vilnius, Lithuania.
But if we would look back at the young age, of course, I was all curious about the computers. And it’s exactly what I intend to write here.
