* Note about my name:

My legal name is Oleg Lavrovsky, but here you see my first name spelled as Oleh in the Ukranian-latinised way of writing it. It is as a daily reminder to myself of the continued terror and injustice of war. Some further thoughts are at on my blog. There's no need to dwell on this at the hackathon, but I'm happy to talk about it over beer if you want.
