We gave a talk at XOXO about living and working off the grid, and trying to apply concepts of to our everyday life.

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 ( It's also been cool to work on something I didn't think I had the skills understand.

“To the right and left, as far as the eye could reach, there lay outstretched, like ramparts of the world, lines of horridly black and beetling cliff, whose character of gloom was but the more forcibly illustrated by the surf which reared high up against its white and ghastly crest, howling and shrieking forever."

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.

Tweaking the Hallway to death, I'm now trying to build myself a stats page. It's not very useful yet since I'm most often randomly poking at some JS dark magic that keeps eluding me me, but I'm slowly getting the hang of it, and learning a lot. Big props to @neauoire, @ckipp and all contributors for releasing such a cool program.

Not to mention iterating on a tool I actually use is pure joy. I might even start to like JS.

Instead of a card, I got my nephew a birthday website.

The plan is to slowly turn the birthday website into a small message board for the two of us.

Really excited to work on this little project.
