Ales Kocur

Objective-C Developer in Dublin, Ireland

Member since September 24, 2016
Ales is a full-stack developer who's keen on tech, design, and UX. He was introduced to programming (C/C++) in high school and then 7 years ago, he purchased an iPad and fell in love with the iOS platform and began working in Objective-C (now in Swift). He also likes other languages and frameworks especially Python with Django to write back-end apps. In his free time, he realizes his own app ideas (all from a design to client apps and API).
Ales is now available for hire
