About me

Highly motivated, dedicated, optimal-solution-seeking, good‑spirited, inquisitive, forward‑thinking, fast and always learning pharmacist starting a career in software development.

Lazar Ika

I am actively looking for internships and eagerly looking forward to starting working and contributing again! :D

I speak Java, MySQL, HTML, CSS and JavaScript, currently focusing on Java.

When it comes to frameworks, I am learning Spring and Hibernate at this time.

One of the benefits I bring to the table is proven experience in the workforce. I have a rich history of high productivity in very intellectually demanding, multidisciplinary positions, measurable outcomes of which are denoted in my resume.

I am quick to understand new concepts, which comes prepackaged with my innate drive to always learn. I am naturally trying to make myself, my work, my environment, and my overall impact - better.

I strongly feel people should have a positive impact on each other’s lives, and I am doing my best to live accordingly. I think people should be happy and satisfied with their work, and I believe that those positive feelings naturally lead to better and more creative outcomes.

Apart from playing with my keyboard, I love spending time with people I love, having meaningful connections, dancing, listening to Impact Theory and similar conversations, learning about philosophy, psychology, and sociology, and I love the time I get to spend in nature. I have shared some of my photos here.
