About me

My name is Karol Bąk and I'm a full-stack developer, currently living in Cracow. Co-founder of Findbed. Interested in both frontend and backend technologies. Ruby fan. Senior full-stack developer and team leader in Paladin Software.

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

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

I've been a part of an amazing team in Paladin Software for almost 4 years now. Currently, I'm leading a small team focused on developing our newest product.

I love sharing my knowledge with others, that's why I started writing this blog. If you have any questions don't hesitate to reach me.
