My name is Tomasz Stachowiak, and I am Klingon. Okay, fine, I’m Polish, but the two languages sound the same anyway. Friends and foes alike tend to call me Tom, Thomasz, Tomaas, or zTomas.
Like almost everyone else, I am primarily known for being a carbon-based life form. Whenever I’m not busy with regular carbon-based life form business, I enjoy shouting obscenities at computers, and poking them with my fingertips. Apparently this makes me a programmer. I usually have computers draw pretty pixels, though I dabble with other domains as well. I once synchronized a physics simulation over the interwebs, using only my bare hands and some UDP packets. UIs can be fun too… at least as long as I’m cobbling together a weird GUI lib, and not using one. I also really enjoy making computers and software do things they weren’t intended for.
Back when my soul wasn’t owned by a corporation, I programmed a bunch of fun personal projects which I could actually share with the world.
... please don’t tell anyone I like UI coding. I wouldn’t want to do that for a living. I only wrote a few GUI libs as means of procrastination.
