After a languages oriented high school I went to study information technologies in Brno. Besides pursuing knowledge and a degree I pursued victories in online races in my free time. Three years passed and I successfuly graduated as a Bachelor of Information Technology. My stray shoes took me overseas to learn Spanish and sutdy data analysis at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. After a year abroad I came back to Brno to complete my master studies. During my entire studies I always freshened my mind on hikes with scouts. I also found a job in Brno at Red Hat where I started doing open source. After completing my studies and becoming a Master of Bioinformatics I moved back to Bratislava. In september 2017 I joined Instarea a big data monetization company, where I’m working as Software engineer.
Becoming a data scientist is my dream come true. Directing huge loads of data to find its place and show its value was one of my first tasks. I’m also responsible for bussines intelligence and data visualization, done primarly in PowerBI. Past year I’ve been working on a new project of peopleless sauna, building up an ecosystem (consiting of mobile APPs and IOT devices) from scratch. Apart from development I’m also coordinating a team of 5 people working on the solution. I’m always investigating new technologies, looking for some alternative aproaches or shortcuts to get better performance, keeping in mind both stability and maintainability.
It was my first “in field” job experience. I was a package maintainer for both Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. I was maintainig some Java and C packages, but my work included also some bash or Python. Besides the basic bug-fixing or RPMS, I came across technologies like Software Collections or Containers.
I joined scouts when I was 10 and since then I love being one of them. I went under a proper scout leadership education, earning a decree. Being a troop leader requires lots of creativity, communication and managerial skills. The scout movement raise, educate and train children and the youth to become independent, responsible, active and open minded citizens. I think that in my case it proved to be true.
