The author

My name is Jakub Baliński. I am a computer science student and part-time programmer, who’s learning the ropes in the IT world.

I have a great passion for learning and I love exploring new fields of computer science, so you can expect to find here a broad variety of topics related to it, such as programming languages, software development, statistics, math, data science, machine learning, the cloud, Linux distros and whatnot.

On the personal side, I enjoy watching good movies and playing video games (especially these story-driven!). I love listening to podcasts about other countries, cultures (mainly the Eastern) and events that take place all around the world.

The blog

The idea to start my own blog and note down the things I learn had been crossing my mind for many months. However, I had never felt ready to put it into effect, because I’ve never considered myself an expert at any field.

One day I realized that, according to the good old rule saying “the more you know, the more you realize how much you don’t know”, I will probably never reach this point.

Finally, on 27th February 2021, I’ve decided to start this blog and regularly share the things I learn with others.

Okay, I have to admit that another reason for me finally starting this blog was being supposed to work hard on my bachelor’s thesis :grin:

At its foundation this blog is serving me as a kind of travel diary, that I plan to keep during my journey into the unknown of computer science. However, it will be great if one day it will become a source of knowledge for other people!

The purpose

I want to solidify my knowledge.
I want to give back to the community.
I want to share my point of view with others.
I want to become a better communicator and teacher.
I want to share things I find not getting deserved attention.
