The deed is everything, the glory nothing. --Goethe
My real name is Юрій Пероганич in Ukrainian. I have been a practicing (volunteer) Wikipedian for many years; my home wiki is the Ukrainian Wikipedia, but I make occasional contributions on the Polish and English Wikipedias as well.
I have a strong background in software engineering, international law and an abiding interest in literature, history and open access.
I am a General Director of the Association of IT Enterprises of Ukraine — a «chamber of commerce» for member companies.
