Victor Novik works with company Scala (www.scala.net) in its RnD centre. He has been working with C++ system and network development for some years and recently he has specialized in COM+. Also he knows the buzzword XML (it is size of underpants, thank to Jon Gogan from Fujitsu who explained that) He is a graduate of Moscow State University named after Bauman.
