Welcome to my portfolio website! I am Michael Zlatkovsky, a 25-year-old Program Manager & Software Developer. I am passionate about software design, enjoy the challenges of debugging, and love the power and responsibility that comes with being a software developer – the architect behind people’s interaction with computers!
I received a dual Bachelor’s degree from the University of Evansville, in Computer Science and Cognitive Science (2009), followed by a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Indiana University (2011). In the last couple of years, I worked for IU’s Human-Robot Interaction Lab, where I designed an extensible visualization framework and developed a multi-robot simulator environment. I also co-founded SmartTabs, a data analysis company, and am now working full-time on the continued design, development, and testing of SmartTabs’ software products.
My programming expertise is in object-oriented programming and framework design – particularly using Java and VB.NET – along with Microsoft Office automation using Visual Studio Tools for Office (see more Technical Skills). I am also experienced in working with a team – both from the technical side, e.g., Subversion, BuildBot, JUnit, etc., and from a more “human” perspective, like delegating tasks, leading a team, peer-programming, writing documentation, and so forth.
Starting in March 2012, I have been working as a Program Manager at Microsoft.
