A natural born coder, I have been inseparable from my computer since I was 13. After 2 years of self-studying in my free time, I became a full stack developer at a local IT company.
My passion for solving problems led me to create many useful mobile apps, one of them was awarded by Google. I have also attended several student programs such as Microsoft STC and a summer program at MIT.
As 17 year-old, I applied for an educational internship to one of the most innovative companies of Europe: Prezi. During my internship, I learned the basics of unit testing and UI testing and met many experts from the web development industry.
After my studies at Leaf Academy, the international school for future leadership, I joined Deepnote (YC S19) as a junior full-stack developer.
Currently, I am studying CS at Charles University in Prague.
I have worked on many projects. This is a selection of them.
Day after I graduated from high school, I joined Deepnote. It is a company that builds a new kind of data science notebook.
While working at Deepnote, I integrated analytics systems such as Heap and Segment, built custom PDF viewer, migrated web app authentication from token based to cookie based, redesigned integrations API, built many new integrations from other services to Deepnote notebooks, and much more.
I had a hands-on experience with these technologies and services: Typescript, PostgreSQL, React, Node.js, Express, Knex, Docker, Sentry, Heap Analytics, Fullstory.
When I was 17, I co-founded a startup called Appoxide Lab. Our team is comprised of enthusiastic developers and designers. Aside from several mobile apps and games, my team and I have created Vagus SOS app. It lets ordinary people help homeless people by reporting their whereabouts to local streetworkers. In just a year, this app has helped more than 50 homeless people, 7 of whom were saved from freezing to death. Not only did our mobile app raise awareness among the citizens of Slovakia, but after presenting it in national news, the government decided to increase investments in homeless shelters.
At the age of 16, I was accepted to the Google Webrangers program, which aims to raise awareness about internet safety. As a part of the program, I created a mobile app Shake It, which reminds users to change their passwords more often. Users can also create secure passwords by shaking their phones. While working on my app, I used my knowledge of combinatorics in order to develop an algorithm that can generate sufficiently secure but still easily remembered passwords.
Out of more than 200 projects, my app was selected to represent Slovakia at the Global Web Rangers Summit at Google's headquarters.
I truly enjoy solving mathematical and logical problems. Therefore, I spend a lot of time doing HackerRank problems. It helps me to train my programming skills and improve my logical thinking.
During the summer of 2018, I had an opportunity to visit HackerRank headquarters and talk to the creators of the platform. They listened to my insight into the platform and were more than happy to implement my ideas.
As 15 year-old, I became a part-time web developer at a local IT company. I worked on various projects, most notably analytics software for a vehicle inspection station. Apart from learning how to write scalable PHP code and design complex databases, I also practiced effective communication with our clients.
During the summer of 2017, I applied for an internship to one of the most innovative companies of Europe: Prezi. During my educational internship, I learned the basics of unit testing and UI testing. It was an eye-opening experience. I had an opportunity to talk to many Prezi employees and see how a huge technological company functions. My internship reassured me that programming is something that I want to do in my life.
