I'm an IT student, based in Brno, Czech Republic, who has just recently gotten into Fedora community and the OpenSource community itself. I have done a few OpenSource projects in the past, some of which you can check out on my GitHub ( profile.

I'm an EMEA Fedora Ambassador, active the most in the physical community (cons, meetups etc.). I also help with translations.

I currently work for as a PHP Coder and am trying to convince the company to be more Open-Source friendly.

My favorite programming languages are Java, Kotlin, Scala, Python and Ruby. I'm trying to convince more Java people to try Kotlin.

You can talk to me in Czech, English, German and probably also some other slavic languages like Croatian, Polish etc!
