I am an enthusiastic and responsible developer with a lot of experience working with various technologies, both on the front and back end.

I'm a lifelong learner. I am interested in both hard-skills and soft-skills. I currently specialize in the PHP and e-commerce platform, Magento 2. I enjoy clean code, development automation, and team that pulls together.

I am also an active musician and amateur athlete.

Web technologies have fascinated me since childhood, and I am incredibly grateful to do my hobby as a livelihood. It's been 15 years since I got acquainted with web development and I still enjoy this field.

To be a developer is not just about IT hard skills, but about combining all possible knowledge from many different disciplines into one the best possible result.

Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer

Education

In 2020, I confirmed my knowledge of the Magento 2 e-commerce platform and earned the Magento 2 Professional Developer certification.

The key was to figure out what areas I am not sure of and then be just curious and ask myself for every particular task - Why is this done this way? Isn't there a better solution? After all, as I always do.

Shopen Group

Shopen Group focuses on the sale and distribution of luggage in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

After merging the Tribound team into Shopen Group, I held Tech Lead's position.

My responsibility was to develop the e-shop solution on the Magento 2 platform with Team, the infrastructure, and the maintenance of related internal systems.

We migrated the original solution on the Magento 1 platform to Magento 2. It also included a facelift of the original design, infrastructure creation, and ERP integration.

I was involved in the whole process of getting the product to the customer, from order to dispatch.

Master's Degree, Computer Science

Education

I completed master's degree studies at Mendel University in Brno in System engineering and informatics - Economic Informatics.

I deliberately chose the university because of economics, marketing, and management overlaps of the System engineering study program.

The IT world is not just about hard technical skills. It's about combining all possible knowledge from many different disciplines into one the best possible result.

Thanks to my alma mater for all those sometimes difficult but beautiful years of study.

Tribound

Tribound

Tribound is a small web development agency founded by two of my college friends (Tomáš Poulíček, Michal Bobocký) and me. It was a great leap into the unknown, which was the logical result of our enthusiasm for the field and the desire to work together.

We created web presentations, e-shops, apps and graphic design for many clients. Besides other things, I created our own modular CMS system based on the Nette framework. My daily routine was Nette, WordPress, Magento, Less/CSS, Grunt, Docker or Javascript.

It was great experience to perceive business from the owner's perspective.

The Prehistoric Ages (2004 - 2010)

I started to discover IT and web development in general.

I created my first website. I was involved in the development of instances of MaNGOS (Massive Network Game Object Server). Not only was it fun, but I started to enjoy programming. Among other things, I have met PHP, SQL, C++ and Linux for the first time.

Technologies acquired me.
