Hey there, my name is Marián.

I'm a 24-yo full-stack web developer and technology enthusiast with interests in various multimedia, art, and design. I have experience with both front-end and back-end web development, project design, UI/UX design, and hardware. I'm currently creating a device to make drones smarter and safe{:target="_blank"}.
I also teach 3D Printing at Czech Technical University in Prague{:target="_blank"}.

How to contact me

My full name is Marián Hlaváč (Bc. Marián Hlaváč if you like titles) and I currently live in 📍Taipei, Taiwan (but normally I'm based in Prague, Czech Republic).

You can drop me a line at  ✉️
I can be found on social networks --- such as LinkedIn{:target="_blank"}, GitHub{:target="_blank"}, Facebook{:target="_blank"}, or Twitter{:target="_blank"}.

What I do

I'm a full-stack web developer with an emphasis on the front-end technologies, and I consider web technologies as my main focus. Alongside that, I sometimes do UI design, develop games, or fiddle with hardware, but if I were ever to sell myself, I reckon they wouldn't make a good selling point.

Web Development

I try to cover all corners of the field, from setting up the server, writing the code or keeping the code maintainable, to testing with users, and focusing on good UI and UX.

Last months I was working the most with the React framework, using it together with TypeScript. Some Python, Node.js, and Rust projects are currently sitting on my hard drive, as well.

Development Techniques & Project Management

Regarding good development practices, "clean commit history", "code review", "continuous integration", or "automation" --- those are some of the terms that I like more than I like eating a dessert after lunch. And I really like having dessert after lunch.

I also like open-source and non-proprietary solutions, so for example, it shouldn't be surprising that this resume is a Markdown file that can be converted easily into PDF, this website, or printed.
Or some would say I'm just a big nerd.

Hobbies & Other skills

I often spend some time improving myself in different fields. I actually have more hobbies than those listed below, but I find hobbies such as "playing Tetris", "cooking", or "drinking beers", highly irrelevant to the purpose of this page.

  • Design --- I like designing user interfaces, print design, 3D modelling etc.
  • Game development --- Both my bachelor and master thesis are dedicated to exploring the possibilities of XR (Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality).
  • Hardware --- Arduino, Raspberry Pi, robotics and embedded systems
  • Photography, Video editing
  • Music composition & production

My past experiences

For almost a decade I dedicated myself to gaining experiences in web technologies. I started small, creating websites for my friends and colleagues in the old-school Xara Designer, then continued to learn how to program small web apps in PHP, and now I'm in charge of the technical infrastructure of a young technological start-up. Whew, time flies.

  • Co-Founder at Dronetag

    • Nov 2018 -- now
    • We started in 2018 when we came up with this idea and won in the Space Application Hackathon competition and decided not to leave the idea right after. In Dronetag, I put myself in the role of technological manager, created the foundations for underlying technologies that power Dronetag's web platform and continues to work on them, as well as work on the user interface of all client applications.
  • Developer & Project Architect at FIT CTU

    • Jan 2015 -- Aug 2019
    • At Faculty of Information Technology, I first started as a front-end developer, but as time went on, I was working on some projects on my own, helped designing user interfaces for various faculty applications, or helped to shape the future of faculty website or learning materials system.
  • Frontend Developer at Brand New

    • May 2013 -- Sep 2015
    • At a young marketing agency, I was involved in creating web presentations for various clients. Most of the time I was working on the front-end code, HTML&CSS was my daily. Together with a competent and social Brand New team, we delivered engaging campaigns and projects for clients such as Beko or Nestlé.
  • Freelancing

    • 2010 -- 2013
    • When I was in high school, I discovered that I could make a few bucks by creating websites for smaller clients. I registered as self-employed and started working as a freelancer.

Where I studied

In 2017 I finished my bachelor's degree at the Faculty of Information Technology{:target="_blank"}, Czech Technical University in Prague{:target="_blank"}. Before that, in 2016 I've finished my 4-year high school program at the Secondary Technical School Karvina{:target="_blank"}.

If you made it all the way down here, I'd like to thank you. If you read this page as a CV, I acknowledge that nobody likes long CVs with a bunch of long texts and stories and whatnot. But I think that one should find five minutes to read about someone, if he wants that someone willing to spend more than five minutes on his project.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
