"Twelve years ago, I embarked on a journey through the world of software development, and let me tell you, it's been one wild ride. My journey began in university studying computer science, but like many journeys, it wasn't always smooth sailing. I had to take breaks from my studies to work at a tavern to bring income to my family, and later on, I had to stop again to fulfill my military obligations. It took me a total of seven years to finally earn my bachelor's degree.
After graduation, I landed a job at an amazing company as a back-end developer, but let me tell you, the struggles didn't stop there. Even with all the knowledge I gained in university, the real programming in the work environment was on another level. But with determination and a willingness to learn, I quickly adapted and found myself diving headfirst into the worlds of Java, Python, Spring, Git, and Docker.
As I became more comfortable and established in my everyday work and tasks, I began to crave more challenging and interesting fields of computer science. That's when I discovered the fascinating world of Artificial Intelligence. The journey was hard but full of knowledge, I enjoyed it a lot. I added new technologies in my 'quiver', like Machine and Deep Learning. I finally completed my master's degree last year and now continue to work as a software developer while also doing lots of side projects.
It's been twelve years of ups and downs, laughter and tears, but through it all, I've never lost my passion for software development. It's an ever-evolving field, full of endless possibilities and opportunities for growth, and I can't wait to see where the next five years takes me."
