Dariusz Sadkowski

Programmer and gamer, unfortunately, won't combine into pro-gamer. My tech stack is focused on eCommerce-related technologies, especially Magento 2 (full stack). Maybe I don't talk too much, but I'm an open-minded, creative person who can find a solution to any problem. When it comes to programming, nothing is impossible, and if you are sure it's impossible, you never asked me for advice. I love to learn new technologies, because - let's be honest - even Magento 2 won't last forever, so it's always a good idea to have some other paths to choose from.
