We switched things up this month and decided to profile Lenovo developer and friend of LenovoDev, Greg Zaitsev. Greg works as a software architect in Lenovo’s Ecosystem and Cloud organization, and also volunteered as a mentor at the HackBCA II hackathon earlier this year. Originally from Moscow, Greg’s work focuses on Windows embedded technologies. He took a few minutes to sit down with us and tell us how he got started coding by complaining about Win95, and which American Idol champion he has on his iPod.
