Hello, I'm Bartosz

My name's Bartosz, on the internet I like to use the nickname Shtobar .

I'm a programmer living in Cracow, who likes to share his knowledge and create maintainable and readable software.

As a web developer

Me at local meetup before presenting a talk.

I am a frontend developer, who started with jQuery and AngularJS (the first one ), and now my main stack is React + Typescript, with a little knowledge of Node.js.

I like functional programming languages and try to incorporate aspects of them as I see fit in my daily work, but without forcing its conventions everywhere. I tried to play around with Elm and ClojureScript but in the end I still work with Typescript applications (although I managed to complete Advent of Code using clojure back in 2017 ).

As a hobby game developer

In my free time I like to try my hand at creating games in Unity engine. I've participated in a few game jams with my friend Shogun. For now, this is just a loose hobby, hopefully it will become something more in the future. All the games I have created can be viewed and played by clicking on the games link at the top.

Outside being a programmer

Besides programming, my biggest hobby is tap dancing, videos of my performance can be seen on youtube here and here. Other than programming and dancing I like playing the piano and hiking. I really enjoy classic nintendo games like Mario and Zelda, although when it comes to modern games I appreciate much more indie titles than Triple-A produtions.
