About me

My name is Tomas Chudjak (pronounced as "Kudiak" in English) and I become a developer in 2012 working for Nokia Siemens Networks. Currently, working as a contractor for various SME and startups. I have experience in different technologies, but specializes to create Front-end interfaces, swagger APIs, AWS cloud virtualization, DevOps and continuous integration and test automation.

Together with my girlfriend Monica we're taking care for a most beautiful achievement - daughter Viktória. And we run a small local coffee shop Il Doppio coffee. You are welcome to visit us there anytime :)
