Hi! I'm Mateusz. A passionate web developer from Poland. I'm 22, but I first started programming in my early teens.
I loved playing video games and eventually wanted to make them too. I saved some money and bought a book about Java programming and wrote some command line programs, including a simple text adventure game. Eventually I moved on to learning the Unity game engine, but while trying to make a soundtrack for my game, I fell in love with making music.
I didn't write a single line of code again until high school, where one of my subjects was web development. I was frustrated with how simple the websites we made at school were, so I decided to learn more on my own. I got to test my skills of HTML, CSS, PHP and jQuery at an internship in Spain, where I built a database management app for employees.
Since then I've been learning everything I could about different web development technologies, and eventually found React. It felt so much more natural than PHP to me. I was hooked.
While I specialise in front-end development, I also have experience with backend technologies and databases.
I love tinkering with web technologies and creating useful things with them. Over my 5 year journey with web development, I've created several full-stack projects, some of which are listed below:
Smaller projects like this portfolio site can be found on my GitHub.
