Google HTML5 Hackathon

I'm very proud to announce that my team ranked 3rd in HTML5 hackathon organised by Google. You can see our effort here.

"[...] It was not only working and submitted to the store by the time demos took place, but also presented with a polished homepage and surrounding content. A polished effort from Jakub Kucharski, Paweł Szymański, Łukasz Pełszyński, and Bartek Sejwa."

I still miss my gray PC

There was one girl at IgniteWarsaw talking about gadgets. She was using pink laptop as an example - you know, that pink matches her personality, that we have to personalize our devices etc.

Her conclusion might be true if you're a teenager who only consumes content. But for content producers (programmers, designers) the appearance of their tool is least important.

I am gray person. It is difficult for me to handle multitasking. Multitasking makes coding slower. Phone calls and all that content flooding me in realtime distract me.

Some smart people measured that it takes you 11 minutes to regain your previous performance after distraction occurred.

And that's why I miss 90's. No cell phones, dial-up Internet - the only distraction was mother calling me for lunch.
