More detailed skill description


I’ve been programming since the beginning of 90’s. I’ve been always keen to not just produce the code but also to study how it works and combine theory with practical coding.


I’ve been using Python for many years, mostly scripts and smaller applications. Never used Django yet although I have general experience with MVC frameworks and I’ve used Flask for smaller applications.
I also did small GUI utilities using Tkinter and PyGTK.

Ruby and MongoDB

At work we develop backend mainly using Ruby and MongoDB. We are not using Rails although the company’s MVC framework is not that different. I’ve written one small app using Ruby on Rails 5.

I consider Ruby very nice language for writing internal Domain Specific Languages.

JavaScript and React

We also develop our frontend using JavaScript with React.

Plain C

I’ve been using plain C for many years mostly together with the Allegro game/multimedia library.


I really like this language and I’ve started to learn it.


I’ve developed many smaller sites during the years using PHP and MySQL. The last one using Bullet PHP Micro-Framework. I also maintained website based on Drupal 6.


I used Java mainly at the universities, as it was the main language at the University of Economics. That were the times of Java 1.4-1.5. I’m trying to monitor new developments in the Java area like lambdas, functional interfaces, streams, modules etc. although I’ve never really did real development in Java for several years. The advantage is that I know most of these concepts from other languages.

I’m familiar mostly with Java SE, i.e. Swing and SWT GUI toolkits. I quite like SWT and used it even from other languages like Jython (Java version of Python).

Although during my studies at University of Economics we did web development using the Struts framework and we were even introduced into Java EE it is too far gone. Recently I started to learn Spring framework.

I would also like to learn Kotlin language as a more concise language for the Java platform as well as for Android development.

Visual Basic for Applications

I’ve developed several macros mostly for the MS Excel.

Delphi/Lazarus, C# (WinForms)

During the years, I’ve developed several GUI utilities using various versions of Delphi/Lazarus using VCL/LCL and Visual C# using WinForms. Not really keeping up with more recent C# features like LINQ (although I very much like it). Being Pythonist I really like the Boo language for the .NET Framework however the language is sadly gone.


I’ve used C++ as a primary language in the times of C++98 standard. Current versions of C++ looks very nice and I would like to try them. Possibly in combination with the Qt GUI library.



I maintained the network at the Institute of Geology including management of Cisco L3 switches using Cisco IOS.

I also have Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching 1 and 2 certificates.

Windows Administration

I maintained MS Exchange and Active Directory.


I’m currently developing tools for deploying dockerized applications to cloud: MS Azure and Amazon Web Services. We use plain Docker and Docker Swarm.


I wrote both my bachelor thesis and diploma thesis using LaTeX typesetting program.
