This week we welcome Roman Sirokov as our PyDev of the Week! He is the author of pywebview, which is a cross-platform lightweight native wrapper around a web view component. You can basically create a desktop user interface using web technologies and frameworks. He is quite active on Github where you can see all the projects he is involved with. Let’s take a few moments to learn more about our fellow Pythonista!
Can you tell us a little about yourself (hobbies, education, etc):
I am a software engineer from Helsinki, Finland. I currently work for Siili Solutions as a full-stack developer doing various client projects.
I have two master degrees, one in computer science from Aalto University and the second one in bioinformatics from University of Helsinki. The first degree was about graduating and the second one about actually wanting to learn something.
I have traveled quite a bit and the longest I have spent on the road was nine months. On one occasion I cycled about 3000km around Baltic Sea during a very rainy summer. I am an avid cross-country skier and try to get as much as skiing as possible with very little snow we get nowadays. I practice ashtanga yoga and vipassana meditation too and try to attend a vipassana retreat once a year. Other than that I dj mostly cosmic music and try to keep my cats entertained. Some of my mixes can be found here.
