Last year for an interview I met Martin Knudsen. Eventually we became good friends.

Already at that time he created apps and now I am happy to introduce you his first book about making apps and how to create of them hobby business.

So if you are thinking of creating and selling your apps, this book will be for you!

Meeting with poet from Lithuania

17004646_l_90331aeeb9d948df00d5c90c6f39ba8cMy friend Dominik advised me to meet his good friend Agnius for an interview. Recently Agnius participated in Women’s Museum (Kvindemuseet) temporary exhibition. It took part in August – October and the topic was “A world of stories”. Young people from different countries, currently living in Aarhus, presented their life stories in pictures, films and objects.

Agnius is 23 years old, he came from Lithuania. I met him last year on couchsurfing meeting, and I have to say he is not a person whom you like from the first sight.  Agnius is a real artist, he lives in his own world, full of images and inspiration. He likes to meet new people and helps them by hosting via couchsurfing.

And he is a talented person. First he told me about his exhibition. It took several weeks to prepare it, every young person had to organize his own place, and Agnius enjoyed this process. It was totally new experience.

IT-consultant and traveller

Usually I try not to be late for my interviews, sometimes it happened, but this time I had good excuse, in Aarhus there are 50% sales, so I just couldn’t pass some shops. Luckily, my interviewee was late himself, so I didn’t feel embarrassed. We went to the nearest cafe and had a nice talk.

This time I met with Jacob, he is 32 years old. Originally he is from Odder, studied in Aarhus at business school. And he is living in Copenhagen for the moment; he has been working for a half a year in IT- consulting company. I heard about differences between Aarhus and Copenhagen citizens, so I ask how was the life for Jacob in the capital.
