I’m Andrii Degeler, a communications specialist and tech journalist born in Ukraine and currently living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Since 2007, I’ve been working for online and offline technology publications both in Ukraine and internationally.

Currently I work as the community growth manager at Rockstart, a great place that helps startups in their first 1,000 days. I also write occasional pieces for Ars Technica UK and The Next Web, as well as some other publications and blogs. I cover all things technology and startups, as well as the tech scene of Central and Eastern Europe.

In addition to that, I send out the weekly newsletter ProCEEd > with all the significant tech news headlines from CEE. Over time, ProCEEd > has grown beyond the newsletter, and now also includes a podcast and a startup consultancy.

The main product of my studies in the University of Groningen (2011–2013) is a Master’s thesis called “Market Development Through Digitization: Newsroom Structures and Editorial Practices In Converged Online Media — Cases of The Next Web, The Verge, and Engadget.” It’s based on a series of interviews with editors of well-known tech media. If you’re interested in what’s happening in the newsrooms of some of the best tech publications, give it a read.

Apart from my work and studies, I’m an ultimate frisbee player, cyclist, boardgames lover, and civil aviation enthusiast.
