Lockdown slowly eases, so I thought I will reflect on those last, really weird 3,5 months. As everyone remembers, on March 23rd almost everything closed down and it seemed like the world is coming to an end. It has been a very stressful time for a lot of people, including myself. Workplaces shut, shelves in… Read More Lockdown: for me
Although I am a frontend developer with all my heart, I was always fascinated by how to build robots or wearable technology.
I haven’t done anything about it until….… Read More Raspberry Pi scroll bot- soldering, building, coding
In the last post, I’ve shared my huge list of sources for license-free images (you can read it here). I hope you enjoyed this library of free goodies because today I would like to list my go-to places when I need cool illustrations for my projects. Here is my list of sources for licence-free illustrations:… Read More Developer’s library: license-free illustrations
The right images are so important on the web. They make a huuuuuuge difference in any project. But have you ever searched the internet for an hour (sometimes more), looking for a good-looking, license-free image, illustration or an icon to go with your new design or project? Yeah…me too. Probably most of the developers were, at some point. Over the time, I discovered quite a few great websites that offer just that, so I’m gonna make your life easier. I’m gonna share my resources with you. Let’s start with images…… Read More Developer’s library: license-free images
Have you ever heard of the Gallup’s Strengths Finder test? No? Me neither… until this morning.
I was browsing the internet looking for something, going from site to site and I got across it. I was intrigued, so started to look into it. The real Gallup’s Test is paid for, but I found a good free alternative to take online. High5 test helps you understand your strengths, and although there are 100 questions to answer, all you have to do is use the slider to say if you strongly agree or strongly disagree with the statement describing a certain behavior.
It took me around 10 minutes to complete the test. The results? Well..they didn’t surprise me at all! It was 100% me. And to show you how cool it is to discover your “powers”, I will share my results….… Read More Strengths finder
Since most of my days are now split between inventing things we can do while locked inside the house, and which will satisfy a short-attention-span of a three-year-old, and finishing all my uni assignments, I have literally no time (or power) for any extra-curriculum learning. Sad, but that’s how it is sometimes. After all, we are all just humans, right?
Anyway, I thought I will tell u a little story of how I got into Uni after I thought I never would be able to. I wanted to write this post for a long time, to shine some light on my past and maybe to inspire someone in a similar situation to mine.… Read More How I got into uni after I thought I never would
A few days ago, while I needed a little break from my database assignment, I created this digital portrait of my daughter, Hannah.
Everyone seemed to really like it, so I decided to share my knowledge and create a tutorial on how to do those cool portraits using any photograph.
All you need is Adobe Illustrator and a photograph! No skills required and it’s really easy to do!
Watch a video tutorial or follow my written instructions below!

Some time ago, during one of our uni lectures, my friends and I were trying to list websites or apps,where you can master your coding skills for free or really cheap.As current lockdown force us to stay indoors (and please do! for everyone’s good ), I thought I will recreate that list and share with you all.
After all, when is the better time to learn something new?… Read More Learn to code for free

Few weeks ago I attended a Work In The Web workshop over in sunny Leeds (if you would like to read more about the event, HERE is the link)
Workshop has been an amazing adventure and I am so glad I got to go and be part of it. I love events like this one, where days are filled with great talks and panels and you’re spending time with like-minded people. The good thing about them, you’re learning a lot more than just what’s on the agenda…… Read More 3 things I’ve learnt during WITW, other than the industry knowledge
