Meet Andrej!

Name: Andrej Ocenas

Andrej Ocenas
Grafana Labs Developer Andrej Ocenas

Current location/time zone:

Bratislava, Slovakia, so UTC+1 (+2 in summer).

What do you do at Grafana Labs?

I am a fullstack developer. Right now I work mainly on backend, but otherwise I do a lot of React and frontend stuff.

What open source projects do you contribute to?

Right now mainly Grafana, which probably isn’t very surprising. Before I did not work that much on open source. I tried to contribute wherever I could and whenever I had time, which usually meant some fixes in things like the React animation library and some iOS Swift/Object-C stuff.

What are your GitHub and Twitter handles?

On Github, aocenas. On Twitter, I am @aocenas, but I never use it as I always found it a bit confusing.

What do you like to do in your free time?

My biggest hobby right now is snowboarding, and close second would be buying snowboarding gear. I probably watched more snowboarding gear reviews lately than I am comfortable to admit. :D So if anybody needs help deciding what to buy, I could probably help. Otherwise I try to exercise as much as I can, and I try to figure out how to eat healthy without putting too much time into cooking. I like to read, mainly sci-fi books, and I love Audible as it allows me to listen to books while doing other boring stuff.

What’s the last thing you binge-watched?

Love, Death & Robots on Netflix, and I can recommend it. I love this kind of sci-fi anthology series.

Which Avenger are you?

Probably Bruce Banner, but specifically as seen in Avengers: Infinity War, where he could not change into Hulk. :D
