Today I had a short talk with the students at my old high school in Slovakia.
Today is the last day of my summer internship at Microsoft. During the last 12 weeks, I met an insane amount of very interesting and intriguing people from all parts of the world.

Another few months went by fast and it’s already summer break again. All my exams are finished, all that’s left are the two programs I have to write in order to get the last few credits.
Well, technically, it’s already the spring semester here in the Czech Republic.. but so much stuff happened a few weeks back that I didn’t have time to write about it then.
Whoah, this conference just keeps getting bigger and better. The organizers counted about 1200 people just in the first day. I remember attending about 5-6 years ago, there were about 120 people in total. Also, check out my post from last year’s DevConfCZ.
This weekend I attended the LinuxDays conference at FIT CVUT in Prague. In between studying, I got to see some talks, most of which were quite good. The ones I liked most were:
This week, my internship at Red Hat ended. During the summer, I’ve worked part-time as a Software Engineering Intern at Red Hat’s office in Brno, Czech Republic. Coincidentally, a lot of the people there are avid cyclists and runners - which I am, too!
Yesterday was my last day at Red Hat (for now). It was a wonderful 2.5 months and a brand new experience for me, and I’m quite sad it all ended so soon. New things await me - my second year at Matfyz starts in less than a week.
Last week I’ve passed 50 days of working at Red Hat. So far, it has been a very rich and new experience for me. I’ve met and worked with a diverse, passionate and international group of technical and non-technical people, sharpened both my programming and people skills, and enjoyed it all!
Today is the end of my first year at Matfyz. It was a long year and yet it went by so fast. I met a lot of wonderful people and even made a few friends. We studied a lot, learned a lot and there is still a lot more to be learned. I’m looking forward to next year!
This weekend I got a chance to attend one of the leading open source developer conferences in the Czech Republic: Developer Conference 2015. It is organized by Red Hat every year in February in Brno. This year, the venue changed from FI MUNI to the very nice historical building of FIT VUT. I’ve visited this venue before, last summer, during the GUADEC (Gnome User And DEveloper Conference).
I passed my last exam of the fall semester yesterday. Generally, it was a pretty crazy day and I’m happy it’s over. Today is the premiere of “The Immitation Game” - the new movie about Alan Turing - in the Czech Republic. Coincidentally, professor Jack Copeland, the head of The Turing Archive, has a talk at my university today. I even managed to get tickets to see the movie afterwards.
Just a quick update, I just set up a new domain, oskopek.com, and redirected it to my GitHub-hosted page.
I am just about to finish the first semester of my first year at matfyz. It was a brand new experience for me. Everything seemed almost too hard at the beginning but, gradually, it got better. We learned a lot of new exciting stuff and revised what we already knew. There was a lot of work to do, but now I can say, it was totally worth the effort.
All of my blogs eventually die of inactivity (from my side). That’s why I’ll be using this mostly as a lookup page for all the other sites I participate at (see links in the footer).
