I'm a full-stack web developer and indie game developer. My focus is on building products that respect the user and deliver a great experience through innovative features and clean design.

About me

I'm a Computer Science graduate from the Wroclaw University of Technology, and live in London, UK. I've been programming for over 10 years, starting with simple C++ apps then going into indie game development back in the ActionScript days.

Since then, I've built a lot of experience in web development working for startups where I've been the first dev and architect, as well as embedded in a larger team with over fifty devs in the company.

    I made this API to help solo devs and small teams easily create visualizations and data mining applications using live online news article data.

    The data pipeline handles 90% of what most people would like to extract from news articles for data mining purposes. It's a sanitized, standardized, and clean data feed that updates with the latest articles every 15 minutes.
