My name is Juraj Zikmund and please welcome to my very limited personal space. I won’t brag about my awesome personality, but will try to introduce myself for people, who doesn’t know me yet.
Who am I?
I am a software developer, experienced skydiver and amateur drummer. Finally grown some balls to create this page, so I hope it rocks your world! There is not much time left to focus on building a public profile, meaning some parts of this page may be out of date or basically empty. Please, accept my sincerest apologies for this insolence.
My primary interest in heavily focused on developing (hopefully useful) software even in my spare time. Feel free to explore them, as all of them are interesting, yet very different in their nature.

I’ve been skydiving since 2010 at the home drop-zone named “Slávnica” in Slovakia. With already 600+ jumps, 30+ base-jumps I took a break, because it no longer gives me enough gas to run this hobby. However, I’m still contemplating to start swooping let’s say at semi-professional level, but I would have to sacrifice a lot of other hobbies.
For the past 2 years I started taking drum lessons, but I’m still lame. It’s quite good to have other activity to fill my time, when I need to take a break from programming. One would not believe that proficiency in playing an instrument requires much more patience and dedication to play at certain level, than you might expect.
Other hobbies worth mentioning are squash and gym. Both for basically the same reason – to keep my physical condition in shape. However, I cannot practice while I’m home like drums, but the benefit is slightly more superior.
Any kind of support is very appreciated! Contact me for more information.
