My life, my software, and everything else
Hello, and welcome to my site!
My name is Alexey "Lyosha" Blinnikov, usually known online by the name "nookkin". "Lyosha" is the accepted common form of the name "Alexey" (it's Russian); the name "nookkin" doesn't mean anything in particular in any language.
I have a strong interest and passion for technology in its many forms, especially when it comes to software development. I've been like this my whole life – I was obsessed with electrical circuits at age 7, for example – and don't plan to stop any time soon. At age 13, I entered the world of programming, and haven't looked back since.
I am currently in college while working at a local IT company as an intern developer. When I'm not at work or in class, I continue to design, build, and repair things, usually for fun and occasionally for profit. Feel free to shoot me an email or check out my personal homepage if you'd like!
Nookkin.com is a project that started in 2008 as a place to express myself online, give the world some of my knowledge, and to have a general place to post my software. The entire site is designed, developed, and coded from scratch, including the "NookkinCMS" platform it's running on. The site is currently running on a Windows VPS that I configured myself. Why did I do it this way? Because it's more fun than using a pre-packaged commercial product.
Some other websites of note are NPS Image Editor, which is a minimalistic site devoted to my image editing application; and alexey.blinnikov.net, a work in progress that will eventually become my personal home page.
Enjoy your visit!
