About me

by Tomasz Jarosik

I was born in Poland, studied at ii at the University of Wroclaw, and I currently live with my wonderful wife in London. Most of my day consists of writing software and making sure that it works. Software is usually a lot of fun, especially when mixed with Open Source and some custom hardware, e.g this site is self-hosted in my HomeLab (soon to be solar-powered). It will also be ads-free. I like to think, read books, hike, and generally care about the mind and body. I was also playing in various brass bands for more than 10+ years (mostly a trumpet, and tuba). Music & Math seems like the opposite things, but I see them as complementary.

A few years ago, I was a member of a small team (big thanks to Asia, Kasia, and Jakub!) which developed beautiful games for kids. See them for yourself:

Designed and implemented from scratch in a short few months on both Android and iOS. (all graphics and animation created by Asia and Kasia too!!!)

I spent many years at Opera Software, writing mobile software, also having episodes like implementing pre-release fixes for Samsung Omnia in Toronto, Canada, working with people from many different companies to get things done. This was fun too (well, probably not many people understand this kind of fun :D)

I plan to share my non-random thoughts on this site. A lot of them are influenced by people like Tony Robbins, Nassim Taleb, Charlie Munger, and many others.
