profile for BartoszKP at Stack Overflow, Q&A for professional and enthusiast programmers
My StackOverflow flair image.                  
I'm a programmer both profesionally and as an enthusiast. I've used to contribute to StackOverflow very often, and I still do from time to time.

I'm mainly interested in issues of creating clean, readable designs and architectures and writing code that shares these merits. I've been practicing and constantly evaluating TDD for 3 years. My favourite languages are C# and Python.

Hung Gar Kuen

Hung Gar Kuen means, more or less, "Hung family's style" and it's one of the largest Kung Fu styles. I've started practicing Hung Gar in 2009, in Marcin Jóźwiak's Hung Gar Kung Fu Academy and since then have become Si Hing - Master's assistant. Hung Gar is a great way for staying healthy, fit and strong. It also has its way of attracting a specific group of people: passionate, modest and striving for perfection.

I've started drumming lessons somewhere around 2001, out of curiosity. One of my first bands was called Ex Anima and on 2008 we managed to self-record a demo (one of the songs is uploaded here). Currently I'm playing with Metaliator, which is also a metal band. From time to time I also like to play rock/blues.

During vacation, I like sailing. I have the most basic inland skipper certificate.
