A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Hello. I am from Poland. a programmer. a scuba lover.
I am a enthusiast in computer science. I had my first experience with computers when I was 10. Programming has always been a kind of passion for me. At the age of 20, I started to create a templates and simple web pages based on html/css. After a few years I got to know asp/php languages and programming became my way of life.

In my free time I am scuba diving, mixing funky/progressive house music and developing my own php project for scuba diving instructors. Last year I have started learning Crypto Currencies such as digging and trading, but now I am trying to write my own Smart Contracts in Ethereum.
