This summer I was honored to become one of the three 2015 Science Hack Day Global Ambassadors. I travelled to San Francisco, USA at the end of October to attend the event and bring the idea back home. Now in the middle of my "ambassador duties" I want to answer the question "Why Science Hack Day isn't an ordinary hackathon?" (by doing a late report on SHD SF).
After successfully defending my Master's thesis at Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana, I am now doing my PhD in particle physics at Jožef Stefan Institute and collaborating with ATLAS experiment at CERN.
In summer 2014 I worked at CERN as a Summer Student on the ATLAS experiment. There I created a simple educational game called Particle Clicker, together with Igor, Kevin, and Gábor.
I have been involved open-source development since 2008. My main projects are Tano Player and VLC-Qt library. I have also contributed to other open-source projects such as XBMC, tvheadend, OpenTTD and more. From time to time I also do some web development.
Currently I work part-time at Fora d.o.o. where I develop web based IPTV solutions.
I have attended 8. International Linguistics Olympiad in Stockholm, Sweden in 2010. Individually I received Honorable mention and as a member of Team Slovenia 1 we achieved 7. place. I have also attended 9. IOL in Pittsburgh, PA in the USA in 2011.
