Welcome, my name is Francis (or František) Malina and I am a software engineer, entrepreneur and the technical director of Etcetera Media Group and Flatmate Rooms Limited. I build software and automate business processes and I train and advise people on how to build those. Apparently, I am a world renowned expert in knowledge organisation. When not getting some innocent adrenaline fix I am usually found in cafes, home and on client sites working on web systems and software, typing into command line, text editor or consulting on the phone.
Working remotely, regularly migrating to stay near client sites.
Slovak/Moravian 🇸🇰 of origin, living in England for 12 years. Apart from other work I built and run a popular room rental website Flatmate Rooms, projects Unilexicon and Medicine Dictionary, and Etc Media Group of sites listing British schools, dentists, GPs, chemists, and restaurants. See my CV.
