My name is Jozef Jarosciak and I am a Slovak Canadian living in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
I work as a Systems Architect for a large IT company in downtown Toronto, Canada. My daily routine consists of being a software architect, software developer, infrastructure administrator, DBA, installer, patcher, fixer, debugger, estimator and pretty much everything in between. This blog started as a notepad for myself (to find my notes in one place) but eventually also became a spot to share my knowledge.
In my spare time, I love to code solutions to puzzles and various interesting projects. I am a big believer in open source, so most of my work can be found on GitHub. Some of my more recent projects are:
- Text Entry Assistive Cloud-Based Platform – The primary goal of this Open Source prototype was to create a web-based real-time text analysis engine, which based on inspection of the entered text offers predictive suggestions to the end user. The project wants to show that smart predictive technologies can speed up the process of creative writing as well as improve user experience and overall user productivity. Screenshot of the prototype’s automated research engine:
- Canadian Mortgage Calculator (Angular & Typescript) – Canadian mortgage calculator that takes into account that loan interest in Canada is compounded semi-annually, rather than monthly as it is in the USA. Also online at: MortgageCalculator123.com
- AWS Lightsail Backup and Clean Up Script – Open Source script to automatically backup an Amazon AWS Lightsail snapshot and then remove old AWS Lightsail snapshots.
- DuckDNS Client – DuckDns Updater is a Windows tray application that allows you to keep your dynamic hostname’s IP address up-to-date (and in sync) with DuckDns DNS service at www.DuckDns.org
