Novosibirsk – Part 1

Martyn Day from DEVELOP3D and I are in Novosibirsk in Siberia to visit LEDAS, a very interesting Russian software research and development company. We spent the entire day at LEDAS and learned a great deal about them, a lot of which was highly classified and not for public consumption. I intend to write more about the company, its technologies and products after I get back to India.

Novosibirsk is a town that was created as a scientific research center. There are a large number of educational institutes and universities. In fact, the LEDAS office in is the academic part of the city.

We had for lunch in a very interesting restaurant which had a very old and scientific theme. Take a look at these pictures. Click the images for larger views.
