I'm really happy to introduce you to my new site!

xvw.github.io

It is still far from finished, but I decided to publish it so as not to risk polishing it without stopping never to publish it :)

Thanks a lot @neauoire for the inspiration and the advises!

If you're at all into Scala, take a look at Metals (A language server for Scala). I've had the privilege to work on it lately, and I love the idea behind the language server protocol (microsoft.github.io/language-s). It's also been cool to work on something I didn't think I had the skills understand.

Hi and thanks for having me!

I'm Tomasz, media tech student from Warsaw. Having realized world of academia is not exactly my world, i'm trying to experiment with various art disciplines in my spare time! I mostly dabble in illustration work, choir singing, languages (mostly japanese these days) and folklore research.
