About me

My name is Karol Bąk and I'm a full-stack developer, currently living in Cracow. Interested in both frontend and backend technologies. Ruby fan. VP of Engineering at Measure Studio.

My journey with web development started in high school. During college 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 love sharing my knowledge with others, that's why I started writing this blog (featured multiple times in Ruby Weekly and other newsletters). If you have any questions don't hesitate to reach me.
