About Me

I'm a 33 year old web & app developer from Hungary. I've been a computer addict since I got my first Commodore 64 when I was 4.

I've started working as a web developer in my early 20s and as an application developer a couple of years later. I have quite a few years of experience with WordPress, HTML, CSS, PHP, Cordova/PhoneGap, JavaScript, Java, MySQL. I also have 5 years of Microsoft Axapta 3 and Dynamics AX 2012 development experience, but that door is closed :).

I quit my 9 to 5 job in August 2015 to become a full time freelancer. I've spent a couple of years abroad and returned to Hungary in 2018. In early 2020 I've started working part time at Kollabor, a centre for experiential education.

Work Experience

Workshop lead - KOLLABOR (since March 2020)

At my workshops, primary and secondary school kids can experiment with and learn about robotics, programming, video game development and 3D modeling / printing using Edison robots, BBC Micro Bit boards, MakeCode, Construct 3, TinkerCad and Craftbot 3D printers.

Freelance developer (part time since 2008, full time since March 2016)

I create highly customised WordPress sites, web and mobile applications using PHP, MySQL and Phonegap/Cordova based mobile apps.

Mobile application developer - [an IT company based in the Canary Islands] (2015 - 2016)

I developed a Cordova based hybrid version of an existing Android application with updated UI and added functionality, now available both on Android and iOS platforms, including phone and tablet devices as well. I based the UI on the awesome Framework7 library, and the application included a custom developed native Cordova plugin for Android written in Java (there was no public API available to implement the same functionality for iOS).

Developer & IT coordinator - Marzek Kner Packaging Llc (2010 - 2015)

I used to do ERP development under Microsoft Axapta 3 and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, web and intranet development with PHP + MySQL, application development with Java J2SE and mobile app development using the PhoneGap framework. I also designed and implemented a Raspberry Pi based digital signage system for the shop floor and handled day to day communication with our Austrian parent company in English.

Sitebuilder and PHP developer - Concept Internet Ltd (3 month internship in 2010)

I did PSD to HTML + CSS sitebuilds and UK customer feedback based modifications on PHP & MySQL based e-commerce sites.
