About

I am Jakob Wierzba, but you can call me Kuba.
I make websites, applications and machines.
I also make art, photographs, comedy and radio, and I blog about science fiction and co-host two podcasts.

If you think that’s an interesting combination of interests, and you need a website, a programmer for your art project, a speaker or workshop instructor, say hi at kuba@3c33.de.

Applications

avldata + auslight

An online resource presentation and scheduling/booking tool I developed for the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. Manages 600 students vs. 600 pieces of equipment. We took a human wiggle room approach: communication over enforcement of strict rules.

Features coming in 2016: e-mail notifications, better mobile experience, improved user management.
Adaptable for other resources or tasks, please get in touch!

oovre

CMS for image-heavy websites. All of the photo-related websites above run on this system or a predecessor.
Through an online file manager you put your high-res images, photographs or videos into a regular folder structure, which is reflected into a collection of HTML, properly converted image files and other assets, which are then uploaded to your own, independent webspace.

kelim

Simple CMS for text-heavy one-page websites.
This very page runs on it, as well as the professor/scientist websites above :)

CV & Skills

I speak English, German, Polish and some French.

I speak JavaScript (vanilla/node/jQuery/Backbone), XHTML5, CSS/LESS, SVG, PHP, SQL, Python, BASH, XSLT/XSD and some C. I have used perls, pascals and basics.

I’m pretty good with WordPress and theme development.

I love the command line, Linux, vim, ffmpeg, imagemagick, sox, gimp, inkscape, povray and scribus – and all combinations thereof. I’m good at Photoshop and ok at Indesign. I can edit video, use Blender and make stuff in Processing. I can program and solder an Arduino or two. Please check out my art and blog for examples.
