Randall Svancara

I am Randall Svancara and I have a crazy Czech last name and it is pronounced, /swɑːn/ + /ˈserə/, at least here in the United States. My day job is technology, where I have helped organizations build everything from super computers to now where I am working to change the world by reducing our carbon footprint in the electric vehicle market. More on that another time.

What is Trying Adventure

I built this site to support my hobby, photography. I have been involved in photography since I was in college where my first camera I owned was the venerable Pentax K1000, fully mechanical camera. That was the best camera to expose anyone to the basics of photography and the fundementals of light. The K1000 was simple but you really had to know your stuff, especially with film photography. Now we have digital cameras with amazing smarts built in. Even better, everyone has an amazing camera built right into your smartphone. Now everyone takes great photos right? Yes, that is true, but I still choose to lug around a full frame sensor camera because smartphones still have not figured out completely to emulate the physics of a lens in order to maximize create flexibility.

About Trying Adventure

Sorry Wix, I just could not bring myself to building some website using a canned platform. While great in concept, I really wanted something where I could build a fast, responsive website that could be tailor fit to my specific needs. So, what did I do? I did what any great engineer does, I built my own site. The entire site is built in GoLang, an amazing language developed originally by Google, but now is one of the many popular langauges out there.
