See what I do

Work

Desktop Application Development

I have experience in building multilayered Desktop Applications based on .NET WPF and WinForms technologies.

Recently, I started developing desktop applications for Windows 8, based on WinJS framework and HTML5.

Web Development

I used Silverlight for Web Application Development for a long time, but I'm also familiar with HTML5, CSS3, ASP.NET MVC, JavaScript and jQuery. I have some minor experience with PHP. I worked with MSSQL and MySQL, but I am not a pro in SQL development.

I have experience in website management, setup and hosting.

My main focus is HTML5 and JavaScript, since these two technologies are spreading and become as an option almost everywhere. These two technologies make a great mixture, which can be addressed on any platform.

Others...

I like to develop applications for mobile devices, my main target area is Windows Phone and Android.

I am a big fan of GitHub and CodePlex.

I also use Linux based systems, mostly Ubuntu or Ubuntu derivatives, my favorite Linux distribution is Linux Mint.

About

Greg Bogdán

I like to work with cutting edge technologies, I like to help out my collegues and team members. I'm a positive person and I always try to see the bright side of negative things. If I decide to do something then I will try as hard as I can to get it done and do it as perfectly as possible. I like to meet people, talk with them, share my experiences about technologies, solutions, system designs. I like to hold presentations and to teach collegues.

What do I do when I don't work?

I really like cooking and pastry cooking. I'm sure if, for some reason my IT career would have not been successful I would work as a chef or pastry-cook.Check my blog [HUN]

Sometimes I take long walks on the streets of Budapest, taking photos of buildings and people, trying to capture the moments of urban life. One of my passions is photography, but I have little time for this passion.

My other passion is racing, I like karting and sometimes I go and spend some time on the track.

I like sports, table tennis is one of my favorite, but I also like to play football.
