Ukraine's economic secret: 'Engineering is in our DNA' - BBC News
As war raged in eastern Ukraine in 2014, Yevhen Vovchuk told his bosses at the IT firm where he worked in Kyiv that he was going on vacation.
Some probably thought the 28-year-old senior analyst, was heading off to a holiday resort to escape the chaotic country for a while.
Instead, Yevhen jumped in a truck and drove nearly 800km to join the fight.
"I decided that I'd be more useful on the front," he tells me.
Like hordes of other young Ukrainian men and women, Yevhen linked up with one of the country's many makeshift volunteer battalions.
Soon enough, his bosses realised he wasn't coming back. But after a frontline car crash nearly took his life, his fiancée urged him to make his way back to civilian life. Eventually, he landed a senior role at Intellias, one of the country's fastest-growing IT outsourcing companies.

Homemade GPS Receiver

A synthesized first local oscillator drives the bottom SMA. Pin headers to the right are power input and IF output. The latter is connected to a Xilinx FPGA which not only performs DSP, but also hosts a fractional-N frequency synthesizer. More on this later.
