JK loves working on Angular, .NET Core, and Cognitive Services.  His most recent projects have featured Docker, AKS (Azure Kubernetes Services) and Machine Learning development. He loves containers and Kubernetes and enjoys showing others the immense possibilities that Container technology has to offer.

In addition to being an expert in ASP, .NET Core, Angular, and Azure DevOps, Jernej is also proficient on Windows platform development from legacy applications (using C#, WinForms, WPF, …) changing them into modern applications (using Windows Store, Windows Universal applications, and Xamarin). Lately, he's sharpening his skills with Cognitive Services as well as Machine Learning.

JK is a technology thought leader and frequent contributor to technical presentations.  He likes to help prepare developers for SSW TV presentations and even gets in front of the camera sometimes. You can see his latest work here: https://tv.ssw.com/tag/jernej-kavka and Personal YouTube or at events like Global Azure BootcampGlobal AI Bootcamp, DDD (Brisbane , Melbourne , and Sydney ), and NDC. JK is equally likely to attend a conference/user group as he is to present at one. 🧐
