The Linkurious team is growing and we are glad to welcome a new member. Alexander Milevski is joining us as R&D Engineer. Welcome Alex! Discover him in 6 questions.
Who are you?
I am an engineer with an huge passion for maps and spatial applications. I am also a big fan of data crowd-sourcing and education processes built on top of it. The biggest project I’ve been working on so far was Wikimapia. I also am a draughtsman and a keen traveler.
Can you tell us about the products you love?
I like 2 things about software: when it brings real value and when it creates a space for the users to express their creativity. Both of them combined can make a software something like the pre-industrial era professional tool: life-saving and a piece of art in itself.
As an artist I really like working with chalk, pastel and plasticine.
What do you expect to learn at Linkurious?
I really like working on computational geometry algorithms and in Linkurious I have plenty of challenge with that with very little constraints. So I want to learn to be better at doing that and in the meanwhile learn more about how visual perception influences understanding of various systems.
Which superhero or fictional character would you be?
What is one thing few people know about you?
That I fully entrust my financial affairs to a professional money-cat.
What is your favourite piece of music at the moment?
I am actually sitting there in the room
