Maksym Iakovyna is a Lead Engineer at ELEKS. A huge IoT and Machine Learning enthusiast, in his everyday work he brings our tech future closer using his favorite Scala and Python. Moreover, Max is fascinated by the achievements of Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence, so he dedicates some of his free time to the development of a gesture recognition project. When not glued to his laptop, Max bikes, snowboards, surfs, jumps on a trampoline and does other crazy stuff, as well as tries to travel as much as possible. Maksym decided to blog when one of his projects went open source and he felt an urge to tell about its objectives and outcomes.
