About this blog
First time a met a computer I was about 6 years old. At the time I know that this big shinny machine (yes, back in time computer was big) would me my job. When I was 14 I already can write simple program in pascal. That year or year later I wrote first PHP script in PHP 4.
My brief history
- During school I was developing simple PHP sites with custom CSM.
- In 2012 I put all data about college students and academic employees in Slovakia to database (including some historical data): https://www.minedu.sk/centralny-register-studentov-viac-ako-4-000-studentov-studuje-viacero-programov/ (Slovak article) | https://www.portalvs.sk/regzam/ (Slovak article).
- In 2014 as a part of great team I built web site for media house Petit Press with 1 mil monthly page views and above 210k real users. See main page or English section. Break a leg guys, I miss you and wish you good numbers ;)
- ... and now is the time to share some of knowledge
Firstly, this blog I develop myself and it's my hobby & relax. Secondly, I want to practice English language, therefore all I write will be in English although I'm foreigner. Last but not least motivation is that I believe that I have experience and real results that I would like to describe.
What I am going to write about
I'm huge fan of Clean Code books trilogy by Rober C. Martin therefore every piece of code I post here will be clean and probably from real web application. I take care not only about working code, but easy readable code and code that you can smoothly maintain and do almost effortless changes.
Some post you may consider rude. I'm sorry about that, but I want to be straightforward and in this style to keep this blog. So, if someone is idiot, than I write that he/she is a idiot. If I consider some code is pure bullshit than why to beat around the bush? If you don't like this, don't read it. But in real life - I'm a nice guy :D.
Who is an idiot? Everyone makes mistakes. I do mistakes - I have no problem to admin it. But I hate people who state that you must do this and don't do that without properly explanation, showing only benefits and forget to mention drawbacks. These ones are idiots. Real life project never goes according to book or on-line tutorial you read. And that's the pretty, that makes me think about best solution on specific project.
What I not am going to write about
Don't search for simple Hello word tutorials. You can find tons of these how-to elsewhere, also I'm not going to teach you step by step how to do something on this blog, but you can still contact me for this purpose.
I'm foreigner. Where I live my friends call me Maťok.
