About

My name is Martin Váňa and I am an enthusiastic programmer and a full-time master student at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen (Czech Republic). I am enrolled in a master degree programme called Software Engineering with specialisation in Natural Language Processing.

Pursuing a degree is always a priority number one for me. However, I am open for opportunities such as summer jobs, internships, interesting thesis topics or chance to further my education abroad.

Programming skills

Programming skills

At the university, we usually write assignments in Java. I love to use C/C++ (not only) for competitive programming contests such as ACM-ICPC or Code Jam. Sometimes I use Python as well. I create web pages using PHP (with Nette Framework), and HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. As a GNU/Linux user, I am familiar with Bash. I have encountered Lisp, Prolog or Assembly; however, I am not a big fan of these languages. I love to write documentation using TeX/LaTeX or Markdown. I experiment with various algorithms, data structures, and programming approaches.

Hobbies

Hobbies

If travelling was free, you would never see me again.

Travelling is my passion. I love hiking in nature and I also like to explore foreign cities and get to know different cultures. I play table tennis for TJ Sokol Holoubkov A team. I own a mountain bike and I enjoy riding in nature. During a winter, I go skiing.

In my leisure time, I read books. My favourite genres are horror, fantasy, and sci-fi. Stephen Edwin King, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, and last but not least, Douglas Noel Adams are my beloved authors.
