About me

My name is Bartlomiej Filipek (or Bartek as a shorter version), @fenbf. I am a software developer from a beautiful city Cracow in Southern Poland. This is my coding blog.

I started coding when I was 14 years old (first book "C++ in 24h"! :)), I got my first real programming job in 2007. Since that moment I gained professional experience in quite a lot of different areas: Native Windows Desktop Apps, OpenGL, Gamedev, BioFeedback games, .NET, Large scale app development, flight planning, and even some graphics driver coding (see my experience on linkedin). During studies I also tried to teach other people by creating lectures about OpenGL and gamedev.

Currently I work as a C++ software developer for Xara. My code can be found in advanced document editors from the company, mainly in Text area. The team is distributed all over the Europe and I work remotely from Cracow.

About the blog

Why do I blog?

  • I like creating training materials and I like teaching. 
  • This place gives me a chance to experiment with new technologies.
  • My work is visible so I have more motivation to finish projects. 
  • "Teach to learn"
  • Improve my overall skills

In the past my posts were written at random frequency, but since the beginning of 2016 - I tried to be more strict! :)

You can expect a post at least twice per month: on Mondays (every second Monday to be correct). Plus if there is a follow-up or some smaller thing it will be published quicker.
