Description

I'm a full-stack developer, currently living in Cracow. Interested in both frontend and backend technologies. Ruby fan. Currently working as VP of Engineering.

My journey with web development started in high school. During college, I had been working as a freelancer building WordPress/PHP-based websites.

After a few years, I got bored and wanted more. That's when I switched to ruby and the real fun began (currently 7 years of experience in ruby). I've been working on many projects, both big legacy applications and new ones built from scratch.

I love sharing my knowledge with others, and that's why I started writing my blog (featured multiple times in Ruby Weekly and other newsletters).

I would love to work more on open-source projects. That's why I created shinygems.dev - a place for developers which gathers all the "help wanted" issued for the most popular gems. Since I like to try new things, it's written in Hanami (source code available on my GitHub).
