About Me

My name is Michael Sverdlin. My nickname is “Sveder”.
I’m a software developer. I spend a lot of my time working on side projects (see the Reflections series), co-organizing one of the biggest user groups in Israel – GDG Tel Aviv, riding my mountain bike and playing computer games. A lot of computer games. Maybe that should go first actually :).
