I have done mostly (web) application development for past few years, mainly in Python (as it suited best for my tasks). Some of them were part of larger application I helped to design. Currently, I'm mostly intrested in ways to take best from agile (TDD, BDD, short iterations et al) and more rigorous (testing and testability, processes, scalability) of development techniques, as well as developer testing techniques and tasks automation. I am looking to improve and learn about practical NoSQL (done things with MongoDB, looking for voldermort, couch, hbase/hadoop and friends), data/text mining (and practical applications like social media monitoring, advanced recommendation systems et al), practical Erlang, F#/.NET, real-time web: Comet HTTP abuse and it's successors. I'm not fluent in those, but being able to learn and practice them during my job would be greately appreciated. My long-term interest also includes project management (especially of small teams), pragmatic view of social networks, distributed software environments, collaborative editing, publishing, tabletop role-playing games (development and design), podcasting (recording podcast about czech RPG scene) and looking for ways to work without computers.
