Biography

I studied on Czech Technical University in Prague (Czech Republic), Faculty of Electrical Engineering, on Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I was aimed to general programming but my master thesis dealt with computer graphics. Computer graphics, especially graphics engines of computer games, is my passion but while I am full-time employee I don't have time to work on some cool game. My other passion is .NET and all technologies connected with them.
Now I am working at AVAST Software, pure Czech Company, that is vendor of one of the best antivirus software - Avast! I'm working here as senior software developer in VirusLab System. I develop and maintain internal system for samples processing. It includes technologies as Windows Communication Foundation, ASP.NET MVC, MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL or Cassandra (NoSQL database).
I share my accomplishment and experience in online conferences (http://forum.builder.cz - especially .NET section), on my blog (http://www.augi.cz) and on offline developer actions.
