Rafał Szczypka – Senior front-end developer and website designer

I have been working with internet projects throughout all their phases for over ten years. Therefore, there is the knowledge coming from education and strong experience, bug fixing and searching for solutions to common problems. At the same time I’m more and more humble in front of the always developing industry and I know I need and want to learn new things every day. The experience helps in choosing the good from among all the other ‘good’ solutions; humility helps in always searching for the new ones.
