Štěpán Skovajsa

Štěpán started with programming at age 12. His journey started with C/C++, lead him to web technologies through languages like PHP and he ended with JavaScript because he realised that both client & backend can be written just with that. In the daytime, he’s a frontend developer at Kiwi.com, in the nighttime, he’s also a backend beast and expresses himself as a full swag developer.
