About me

Following our will and wind
We may just go where no one's been
-- Tool, Lateralus

My name is Michał Męciński, I live in Poland, I was born in 1982. In 2005 I graduated Computer Studies at the Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice. Currently I work as a senior developer and technical team lead for a software company in Gliwice, using mostly .NET framework. I also create open source, cross platform software, using C++, PHP and JavaScript. I have a son, Adam, born in January 2012.

My biggest hobby is creating computer games, but with a creative and open minded approach, almost every task can be an interesting challenge. I try to combine doing useful things with purely academic projects and earning money with writing free software. I enjoy designing functional and technical aspects of programs even more than actual coding, and I often work on long term projects which take years to evolve and form into various shapes.

In the little remaining free time that I don't dedicate to coding and to my son, I try to relax by listening to music, mostly progressive metal, watching movies, reading books and playing computer games. I used to spend a lot of time going out with friends and attending to various festivals and concerts, but my priorities have changed over time. However, I still have a lot of crazy ideas that I would like to accomplish, and I feel more creative than ever.
