About

I am a professional with 8 years of experience in Information Technology and entrepreneurial areas. I have strong educational and work background in both these disciplines. IT is also my biggest hobby. I am interested and curious about all areas of IT, that’s why my career aim is to become a security specialist to combine most subareas of information technologies. Besides my professional skills, I am very confident about my soft skills, such as leadership and problem solving. Also, I am a quick learner and always motivated to gain new skills. Currently, I'm pursuing AWS re/Start program.

    I believe that the best way for learning is experiencing/applying. That's why I've created this project to gain hands-on experience about AWS re/Start Program content, and also I'm sharing my experiences and some useful content related with AWS and cloud computing for beginners like me. During this project, sometimes I chose more challenging ways instead of the best-practices to push myself to learn more. You can visit project's website for details.

    Silly Chatbot

    I've created a silly chatbot to practice my teorical Python knowledge. It asks your name and age, then offer 2 simple games to play. In the very first version, I've used if/else statements, for/while loops, functions, user inputs, system commands and exception handling. I will continue to improve this chatbot during my learning process.
