Title: CTO

Most impressive thing that I have built or achieved.

In Lithuania during 10 years with my friend we had been fostering indie-rock music lovers community, which became a sort of a movement eventually, with 10k followers on Facebook and every band in Lithuania who was playing rock music new about that community, called “Liverpool”. We ended up doing events every month in different cities and I was standing on a stage putting mp3 files on an old computer using Winamp (on Windows) in front of 1000 people.Please tell us about a time you most successfully hacked some (non-computer) system to your advantage.

Once I was managing two offices one on the 3rd floor and one on the 5th. So ther was a 4th floor in between. We had internet connection only on the 3rd floor, I managed to bring the cable to the 5th floor and use the same subscription for the second office. The challenge was to hack into the cable pipes without neighbours on the 4th floor realizing that the cable is passing their premises.

Things I’ve built before:

1. SMAILD – an integration with Swiss Post office (using Pingen) and a Swiss ERP system called Bexio. It allows to send physical letters directly from ERP. https://smaild.com
2. Improved way for publishing Art NFT, dedicated for people who need more control and semantics on a token https://github.com/deidis/semantic-nft
3. Pipereader – an attempt to improve speed reading. It streams text in a single spot
4. Solana blockchain reader to check which tokens are coming up soon on a DEX
5. Started to work on a sort of Zapier but more for developers. Used AWS Steps.
5. A bunch of websites, I don’t keep track of
6. A bunch of backend integrations, I don’t keep track ofList any competitions/awards you have won, or papers you’ve published.
