I am Maroš Kučera, and I'm a Backend Developer. Currently, I work with VIZIO, a Digital Experience Studio based in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Usually, the stuff that I (co-)develop uses Symfony or WordPress as a base, my code is therefore mostly PHP. I believe that programming language is an artisan's tool, and artisan's value is not in his tools but his skill. So they call me a PHP programmer, but it's not really the important thing about me.

Recently, I started to dabble in Go and I now firmly believe this is where (my) future is headed.

As a side-thing, but which comes up often, I like to meddle in databases. I enjoy finding ways to optimize the structure of database and queries that an aplication sends to the database.

When I'm off-duty, I like to read books and go on bicycle trips. I am also an amateur photographer, my passion is in-action portrait photography, which I excercise on trips with friends, trying to capture the emotions and atmosphere of the moment. I like to listen to podcasts, my favourite are Changelog, Go Time, Ship It and Serial.
