    Devel.cz Lab s.r.o.

    JavaScript & PHP programmer in Prague, Czech Republic

    The best job I have ever had so far. I have learned so much incredible technologies and practices. Devel.cz Lab will always be close to my heart!

    Project Wikidi.com
    I was working on wikidi.com during my first 5 months. The software compares various attributes of products which helps users with their buying decisions. The project has become successful and it was crucial to focus on scalability and performance of the entire project. It was a first time in my life when I wrote tests for my code.

    Project Flowreader.com
    After I finished the Wikidi project, I have become a full-time JavaScript developer on flowreader.com. We have built the project from scratch and I was in charge of the decision about technology we would use on a frontend because it was a single page application. The decision was Google Closure. The benefits were static analysis of the code (type checking) and compiler which squeeze the application into 40kb. When the application got bigger we added ReactJS in order to improve scalability. Rendering components became much easier to develop or debug. Great times!

  • Interests
  • Programming

    Yes, that's right! I do love programming and I have to say it affects my personal life in many ways. My passion drives me to write a neat code, moreover, I'm studying design patterns and best practices to keep myself on the edge in a huge range of technologies and principles

  • Learning new things

    As previously mentioned – I enjoy studying and reading about a software development in order to make my picture about programming wider. I am trying to understand as much as possible how a designer or a server admin see the application. I believe finding a path between those two worlds is the best way how to achieve an exceptional user experience.

  • Downhill & Freestyle biking

    Adrenaline sports are helping me to get the right level of energy I need in order to be able to manage my personal and professional life. I am trying to keep a healthy work-life balance, however, programming usually wins the battle over!

  • Recommendations
  • Michal Zlabek

    Co-founder of tripjay.com

    I worked with Michael on an internet startup project, where he lead the development, of both front- and backend. The code he produced was incredibly readable, easy to understand and he was able to push vast amounts of it in a short space of time. He strives to always use the latest tools available which is a big plus. Would definitively recommend Micheal to anyone.

  • Roman Ozana

    PHP Developer at Testomato.com

    Michael is great developer with sence for humor. He knows a lot about JavaScript and modern front-end technologies. It was nice to work with him. I definitely recommend him!

  • Roman Schejbal

    Web Developer at Wikidi a.s.

    Working with Michael is a pure fun, his geeky, nerdy jokes have made me cry for quite a lot of times. From the professional perspective, he is really keen and curious about technology. He has this - I would say feature - which is the fact that his code is usually cleaner than your toilet. It was my pleasure to work with him as you dont meet meet this type of guy very often. He also has a solid background about PHP & Symfony2, general design Patterns (when to use them as well), and even some mobile development I definitely recommend Michael as a Software Developer.

  • Jahid Zaynal

    Online Engineer at Estee Lauder UK

    Michael has real programming talent. He loves beautiful and maintainable code. He is quite passionate about re-usable code and the separaton of logic from design. His passion is in a level that when he doesn't like the way people code around him (i.e. the 'wrong' way), he simply cannot stay there for long! I'd recommend him to the fullest.
