Hi, i'm Premysl Donat. I'm software developer and entrepreneur from Czech Republic. I was born at 1990 and spent my childhood in small rural town. I attended technical high school which gave me a few good friends and a short-term tech aversion. That's why aftrwards i applied to law school. I didn't get in and i started working in a family business.
Family business wasn't much fun so i started to look elsewhere. I came out with a business idea for an online copywriting marketplace. Having no skills but some money i contracted a software agency. That was all right but somehow slow and in the meantime i started to learn programming myself. First some HTML and other web basics, then finally Ruby on Rails. And this really changed my life. Ruby is a beautiful language and ecosystem which fits perfectly with my beliefs and attitudes and i consider myself very lucky that i came across it.
Unfortunately the marketplace wasn't a success and i quickly run out of money. So i applied for junior Ruby developer position at UOL and i stayed there for six years and learned a great bunch not just about programming. Afterwards i spent two years at TopMonks, which gets us almost to today. Now i run my own software development company Imagine Anything and also an accounting company TaxBox which i co-own with my former colleagues.
Have a good one!
