Hi!

I’m Michal Pokorný, a 25-years-old “software” “engineer” from Czech Republic.

I work at Google Zurich and might some day get around to finishing a master’s in AI at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague.

You can find me on Telegram as agentydragon. My personal e-mail is agentydragon@gmail.com.

I am on GitHub as agentydragon.

I am an effective altruist (Czech) and I currently earn to give. You can take a look at my donations on My Giving at Giving What We Can. (If the link is broken, it means CEA still didn’t fix their new shiny site after their org ate GWWC. My apologies. I guess they are working on it.)

I also have a LinkedIn account and a Facebook account. I only use LinkedIn for people I worked with and I only use Facebook for people I consider my friends. If you try to connect with me or add me as a friend and I have no idea who you are, I’ll probably ignore the request. I do not mean this personally and this does not mean that I do not want to be your friend. In general, I want people to be my friends. It’s just my preference in how I use social networks.

From time to time, I hunt for geocaches.

I try to be a generalist. Some stuff I do or did before:

• Web stuff. In the distant past, I used PHP, then Ruby (on Rails and off), and I mostly use Python today. Of course, there’s JavaScript and its offshoots.
• I sometimes write software that needs a lot of performance. I mostly use C or C++ for that, but I also like Go.
• I also wrote a few desktop things in Java and C#. I’m a bit more competent in the latter.

Between 2012 and 2016, I helped organize KSP – a computer science seminar for high school students by Charles University.
