Blog It Forward – Vitaliy Rudnytskiy (release 2020.02)

Hello again! Привіт знову! Witam ponownie!

I am glad to see that Blog It Forward challenge has been restarted. This time I was pinged by Łukasz Pęgiel.

As well I am glad that — differently from the previous release 2014.12 — this time it did not take me 2 years to join the challenge after being called out ;-P

About me…

…is still pretty much the same as it was in my previous Intro five years ago. I am:

  • still using two Latin name spellings Witalij Rudnicki and Vitaliy Rudnytskiy,
  • still living in Wrocław in Poland,
  • still driving 2005 Ford Taurus,
  • still with SAP in the Developer Relations team (although now my official role name is a developer advocate),
  • still enjoying my work, and still my focus is on Data && Analytics technologies.

What has changed is that in the meantime I finally visited Australia to do some SAP CodeJams there! Plus we turned SAP Inside Track in Wrocław into the repeating event (coming again on June 20th this year)!

Three questions…

…from Susan Keohan list.

Share a fun fact about yourself

And as a fun fact, I am known for taking “Sygyzmundovych-style” selfies during community events, like SAP Inside Track (here is the latest from #sitWDF 2020)

…or Stammtisch (here in Wrocław with local SAP colleagues) ?

…or SAP TechEd (here with our Developer Garage team)!

If you were not in your current position, what/where would you be and why?

I think one day I go back to my previous job as a consultant: back to delivering solutions and solving big hairy problems.

What is your personal life dream?

My home library of books is growing faster than I can read. I dream to catch up reading ?

The next BIF nominations are…

…organizers of community events in Poland:

and in Belarus:

Please follow Susan Keohan‘s BIF sequel post and answer:

  1. What do you like the most about the city you live and work in?
  2. What was your biggest surprise/discovery while organizing/attending community events so far?
  3. What is your hobby or favorite activity outside of the work?

      I have the same personal life dream, stemming from the same issue! My "to read" library grows faster than I can actually read the books.

      Hi Vitaliy, and welcome (back) to the #BlogItForward family!

      I am very familiar with your 'Sygyzmundovych-style' selfies, and appropriately envious of your abilities.  Maybe at the next TechEd you can give me some selfie pointers?

      So, nobody has taken the 'ice cream' question.  I'll ask you:

      If you were ice cream, what flavor would you be, and why?

      Now you made me thinking, Sue... How do you call a flavor of an ice cream, which has no flavors, just a plain ice cream??

      I searched far and wide, and the best I could come up with (the first hit, actually) was this:


      So there is plain ice cream.

      But what is most amazing is the thread that comes next, where someone is asking the dimensions of an adult llama.  So what started as a silly question has evolved into some serious learning.
