I am a software engineer with broad experience in technologies on Microsoft platform. I work with C#, SharePoint, ASP.NET MVC and Azure every day. Lot of my work is also related to improving application lifecycle management: software methodologies (SCRUM), DevOps and release management. In my current position at Microsoft I work on-site with customers across EMEA region. My typical customers are banks, telco and other large companies across multiple verticals.
Premier Field Engineer (Software Development) @ As Premier Field Engineer, I develop software and offer support and consulting in software development on Microsoft .NET platform to customers in EMEA region.
Since joining Microsoft three years ago, I have been working extensively with ASP.NET MVC, Team Foundation Server, Modern UI App Development (Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1), Win 8 application compatibility, Azure architecture & development, and solutions on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2013.
Besides consulting and delivering training I also participated on several larger projects. I implemented an integration and customization project between Microsoft System Center Service Manager and SAP help desk solution using MS Orchestrator platform and WCF for a state department. Also, I developed SharePoint intranet solutions (branding, webparts, and advanced customizations) for multiple major customers (finance, state dept. logistics verticals) in Czech Republic. By nature of these projects, these solutions became pivotal for those organizations.
Noteworthy projects in Application Lifecycle Management and Team Foundation Server are: ongoing effort on improving development practices in a local dev house that provides software solutions for online gaming in several markets; and major TFS customization and evangelism for a large dev company (800+ developers) in Eastern Europe that, influenced by my inputs, migrates all internal development supporting tools to TFS.
Lately, I have started devoting more time to Azure and I have been working with various customers on architecture reviews and technical guidance for Azure. From June 2012 to Present (3 years 7 months) Prague, The Capital, Czech RepublicDeveloper, Software Architect @ In Trask, I participated on several projects in Financial and Automotive industries as a developer and as an architect.
Trask Solutions is well established local company of around 300 IT professionals that does software development and other IT services for large customers in finance, telecommunications and other sectors.
I was a software architect on a project for Skoda auto car manufacturer. I created architecture for a software for marketing support for worldwide operations, particularly the load balanced architecture with MSMQ, SharePoint, WCF and InDesign server as the main components. I also partially implemented the backend part of the architecture while other team members focused on SharePoint frontend.
Other project that I participated in was a Document Management System for a large local bank. This solution was developed from the ground up over a course of one year in a team of four people including myself. Main development platform was ASP.NET MVC with other technologies like NHibernate, JQuery and MS SQL 2008 being part of it as well. This project was a large success partially due to rigorously implemented SCRUM methodology. The final release was delivered ahead of the schedule to a satisfied customer.
Thanks to a great feedback from customers on each project I was offered an opportunity to take part in hiring of new candidates to the company, technical readiness and cultivation of the development culture of the entire .NET team (10+ people). While I greatly enjoyed this, I was not able to fully commit to the task because I was offered a position at Microsoft and eventually decided to accept it. From October 2010 to August 2012 (1 year 11 months) Prague, The Capital, Czech RepublicDeveloper, Project Manager @ Various projects developed mostly in C# with use of XML, SQL, LINQ and other Microsoft technologies.
When I started, I was working on a bespoke Customer Relation Management system integrated to Outlook. I was doing mostly development of new features in C# and Office Integration SDKs.
Then, I moved on to other product of the company that, from the technical standpoint, was similar to the above. It was a full-fledged front office solution for Head Hunter agencies. A lot of my work at that time consisted of creating migration scripts to import customer’s existing system databases to our new system. The source of data as well as the structure largely varied and it was anything from large inter-linked XML files to SQL databases from various vendors. It was a challenging task due to constraints on data consistency and relevancy.
Towards the end of my employment I also started doing project management but I was not ready for that role at the time. I could not distance myself far enough from the technical details of the projects and I could not reason well with the demanding customers. Nevertheless, it was a priceless experience. From December 2006 to September 2009 (2 years 10 months) Prague, The Capital, Czech RepublicDeveloper @ I was working there on DRM for memory cards for mobile phones as well as some state-of-art image recognition software prototypes. From June 2005 to December 2005 (7 months)
