My name is Sergei Sergejev (Estonian passport name), or Sergey Sergeev in English, or Сергей Сергеев in Russian-cyrillic.
This blog was launched in 2006 as a place to share setup of linux on my laptop. Back then it was hell of experience – not everything worked and you needed to fix stuff with google and a hammer. Now it just works and I’m enjoying my Ubuntu. ssergeje was my username in university, it sucks, but I don’t want to break the links. Otherwise I’m ‘sserzant’ in most online places.
I studied IT Systems Development at Estonian IT College. I felt that development is not my thing, as I put way too much attention and mental resources to details. Though, I really liked scripting (Bash, Python), creating documentation (wikis, tables and reports), making analysis (UX, critical thinking, diagrams) and reviews. This way, I became a software tester. Useful software that solves customers’ problems was and stays my passion (so as whining about problems that hold us back). Seeing how software development process and people interactions affect quality, I naturally became very interested in software development methodologies, personal efficiency and so called management 2.0.
All written in this blog is my personal opinion unless mentioned otherwise.
