On the programming side, we tend to go for Python, C, C++; we are also familiar to various degrees with a number of other programming languages. We tend to work on the FOSS stack, in the Linux ecosystem. We have experience with desktop apps, back-end and special-purpose programs, but we are not limited to these areas.
On the computer science side, we can do visualisation, simulation, optimisation... Often these will be more on the special-purpose side, programs with just one or a handful of users, used only briefly to gain insight into a problem or overview of a situation before being superceded, the target problem solved or at least understood and advanced to the next stage.
We keep up-to-date with the FOSS and Linux field so as to be able to recommend cost-effective solutions combining off-the-shelf components with customisation and, where appropriate, custom code.
We are located in Epping (Sydney).
Before founding Sabik Software Solutions, Jiri:
- worked on the PLANE project, a social network used by thousands of educators in NSW and throughout Australia, including a recommender feature, search, single sign-on and webservice integration both internally and with third-party systems;
- wrote the Table Selection Tool in the Okular PDF viewer, originally in order to facilitate the preparation of clinical systematic reviews and similar summary articles, although the feature itself is quite general; and
- modelled deforestation and conservation strategies in a simulated Costa Rican landscape, leading to publication in Conservation Biology;
- among many others.
Jiri has a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from Monash University.
Community involvement: Jiri is currently the Secretary on the OSDClub executive committee and a member on the SLUG (sub)committee. Previously, in 2008-2012, he was the secretary of Linux Users Victoria and served on the committee of the 2008 linux.conf.au conference with responsibility for the zookeepr conference management system. He has been involved in a number of other open source projects, from connectr (a distributed social network) to MatPLC (an automation system for Linux, which he co-founded). He has spoken at a number of Linux user group meetings and FOSS conferences.
