About a month ago I posted here an April's fool half-joke about switching this blog to English after writing exclusively in Russian for 5 years.
Unexpectedly the idea was accepted by my Russian readers with mild enthusiasm. So here it is — an inaugural post in English about... me posting in English :-).
My name is Ivan Sagalaev. I'm a web developer working mainly in Python. Currently I'm leading a group of Pythonistas at Yandex — a leading Russian portal and search engine (yes, we're bigger than Google here in Russia :-) ).
Here I'm writing mostly technical stuff on Python, Django, programming languages in general, software design, parallelism, web technologies like OpenID, HTML etc.
From now on I'm going to write in both languages to share what I want with a world-wide audience. Please subscribe to the feed, read, leave comments!
