OK, some boring facts about my humble self: my name is Petr Sedlacek, I’m 42 years old and I come from a small town in the south of the Czech Republic. I was living in Prague for 8 years while trying to study at the Czech Technical University.
In 2005 I went to the UK with my then girlfriend, now wife, “for the summer holiday” – which turned into eight and a half years. It was a very nice experience. We lived in a small town of Stourport-on-Severn in Worcestershire, about 30 km south-west from Birmingham. I worked in Kidderminster Footwear, one of the UK’s leading wholesale footwear suppliers as “IT manager”.
We returned in 2013 and have been living in Prague again since. Here I worked at CA Technologies for 4.5 years as Software Engineer (I left right when they were swallowed by Broadcom) and now I work as Systems Development Engineer at Amazon.
I’ve got lots of different interests and hobbies – I like to try everything, but at the same time can’t do anything properly. Among others – sports (windsurfing, archery, mountain biking, squash, badminton, rock climbing), amateur radio (I’m licensed as OK1THA and M0WTF), programming (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), mechanical keyboards, RC model flying, photography, music (playing the guitar and ukulele), films etc.
