Marek Kadlčík

Hi! My name is Marek Kadlčík. I study at grammar school in the Czech Republic. I'm an organizer in Czech Google Developer Groups. We not only support developers with free talks and workshops but also help people learn how to use modern technologies.

I'm keen on programming. However, it isn't taught at my school, so everything you see here I've learnt on my own. Besides programming, I'm interested in design, especially in responsive webdesign (just look at this website!), a user-friendly interface and minimalism.

What I do

Android

I develop native Android applications from the ground up and follow Google's Design Guidelines. I used to use Java, but I recently switched to Jetbrain's Kotlin.

iOS

In addition to Android platform, I've learnt Swift, a modern language maintained by Apple. I'm familiar with iOS development principles and iOS framework fundamentals.

Web

Website technologies such as HTML and Sass are something I know fully well, although I'm not focused on them. I create websites to express the content. On the flip side, web services (e.g. Firebase & Realm) are much more important for me as they help me build a better software.
