Programming: Our current primary programming language is Python; we also have skills in C/C++ and shell scripting as well as some familiarity with Perl, PHP, Pascal, Ada and a number of other programming languages, including PLC stepladder.
Computer Science: We have university qualifications in Computer Science, so we bring theoretical grounding in addition to practical experience.
FOSS Solutions: We keep up-to-date with the FOSS 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
