The word 'prkos' translates as 'defiance'. It is also a common name of a small flowering plant that can grow under difficult conditions, in places where other plants can't grow. It may also be that it was called that because you seed it here but it grows there :)
Mihaela founded Prkos as a housing ground for her creative urges when it became apparent over a decade ago that she would be following the business and web-tech path instead of physics related trade she was educated for. Her scientific outlook, deep curiosity about how stuff works and problem solving and teaching skills still impact everything she undertakes.
The decision to go into business waters was heavily influenced by various American business speakers who generously shared their wisdom on their visits to Croatia. The contagious ever positive forward moving entrepreneurial spirit inspired to defy the legacy of dispirited atmosphere. Through her business and startup experience, Mihaela found the perfect way to serve the world and she recognized it as the natural medium for getting things done, answering questions and achieving impactful results.

Mihaela has been drawn to all things open source since she first learned about the concept, and contributing to Inkscape has been a large part of that journey. She joined the Inkscape community over a decade ago and quickly became proficient enough to graduate from helping out in the forums, triaging bugs and testing nightly builds right into writing a book of recipes for fast learning.
