I will breifly tell about my migration from one professional field (international logistics) to another (informational tecnhologies). Some people may be inspired by that way, others can take it as a warning. I was travelling all that way not by myself only, but understand who i am i can only by myself. I've also dragged two of my friends in that migration - Igor and Dmitry.
I will tell you the things about St.Petersburg which were not covered by InterIt speakers before me. Try to debunk the myths about paradnaya and porebrik. And, of course, i will talk about my Minsk experience - especially, with a little linguistic bias.
