About Me

April 25th, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

My name is Mario, I am 33 years old software developer with multi-platform programming experience. Born in Trinec, currently living near Prague, Czech Republic.

I started as an app developer when I was 11, developing apps for Windows, later switched to the game development, worked on iOS games (Plague Inc, Moontakers, Polar Fishing, …) and iOS tweaks (OctopusKeyboard, SpeakEvents, AssistantExtensions, …) for jailbroken phones. Now I am mostly managing the server and apps hosted there, doing some backend development in Go and frontend in Vue.js. More here.

I am constantly learning new things and look forward to new challenges every day. I like the freedom when I can decide how and when to do what I want to do without any corporate bullshit. Programming and IT is a big part of my life.

Why K3A?
It should have been Kea, but kea.me domain was not free and k3a looks good as well. It should be pronounced the same way as kea bird (see youtube). And why Kea? Because I love nature of New Zealand, culture, clean air and considering to move there in the future. I am not very satisfied in the Prague where I live currently. It’s too much people in here, too much cars, dogs, noise, bad air, but at least nice buildings (ideal for tourists).

Work/cooperation Offer
I am also looking for talented people and friends to help me build new things.
I have several great ideas and I am working on them myself (that’s why I am so busy).
Feel free to add me on Twitter or say hello by mail.

    I thoroughly enjoy Plague Inc.

    I also much appreciated the message to game sniffers! :p
    I changed the names of the genes to my friends names that fit them perfectly, because we all love your game! :)

    Many thanks for the fun time!

    Thanks – I am glad you like it. Hehe, smileys are there on purpose – to mark a file as encrypted. What would be a better “header” than a smiley. ;) Just a side note – I would like to allow players to modify game data files and have fun but unfortunately some players used this to modify the difficulty and then send scores to scoreboards – which is unfair – so we had to encrypt them (which partly solves this problem)…

    I completely understand.

    I disabled Game Center, and when I mess around with files I make sure that my WiFi is disabled. I don’t know how game center works but I would hate for some kids (or anybody really) who worked hard on a game to see there effort get invalidated by someone who can basically open a text file and modify some values.
