I'm a C++ software developer with more than 14 years of professional experience, I'm Microsoft MVP and C++ ISO Member. In 2010 I graduated from Jagiellonian University in Cracow with a Masters's Degree in Computer Science. I work at Xara, where I develop features for advanced document editors. I have also experience with desktop graphics applications, game development, large-scale systems for aviation, writing graphics drivers, and even biofeedback. In the past, I also taught programming (mostly game and graphics programming courses) at local universities in Cracow. Since 2011 I've been regularly blogging at bfilipek.com (now cppstories.com) where I focus on Core C++. I'm also a co-organizer of the C++ User Group in Cracow.
