About me

My name is Marcin Juraszek and I’m a programmer. I blog mostly about programming: open source projects I started and/or contribute to, interesting problems I find on stackoverflow and those I face myself during my coding.

Work experience

I’m proud to say I work as Software Engineer at Microsoft. Being a part of that  well known, great company and working in its headquarters in Redmond, WA give me opportunity to grow and learn from some of smartest people in the world. The fact that my job affects millions of people all around the world makes it both really exiting and challenging, and maybe that’s why I’m really happy to work there!

Before I started working for MSFT I had been working as Software Engineer in Future Processing – great polish software company – for over two years. Experience and knowledge I gathered during that time is priceless and I’m really glad I could work in the great company, with many really smart and valuable people.
