Hi, I’m Michal.
A Software Engineer.

About

My name is Michal Martinek and I am a software engineer based in Prague, Czechia. I've been developing apps for over 7 years — from frontend to backend. My area of specialization is Information Systems Development. I graduated with a Master's in Computer Science from the Czech Technical University in Prague recently.

Out of the office, you’ll find me cycling, reading some modernist literature, and playing saxophone, AKAI EWI, or piano.

Some time ago, I developed Carpal and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome in both of my elbows and wrists. As a consequence, I couldn't use a keyboard or mouse for more than half an hour without a long break. Fortunately, there are other ways to control computers e.g. voice control. During this period, I learnt how to program again, but with a microphone instead of a mouse and keyboard.

Therefore I built simple Voice Control for this page so you can try out how it feels to control a computer using your voice.

Works

I'm proud to have worked on projects for some awesome companies:

Skills

I can provide expertise in a full application development lifecycle - from concept and design to implementation, testing, and deployment. I also have a little experience in UX design.

These are some of the technologies that I picked up along the way:

These technologies are my personal favorites and I know them very well.
