Arek Śliwa

The Front(end) Line Cavalry

Arek Sliwa – a theatre actor by education whose passionate affair with web development began in the scorching summer of 2014. Once he realized that preparing a performance is SCRUM-like in methodology and requires the same strict logic, he sunk in deep and the frivolous affair turned into lasting love.

‘It was one of the biggest surprises in my life to find out that the world of zeroes and ones is equally fascinating to the one evoked in Shakespeare’s verses. What I came to enjoy about working in frontend were the never-ending developments so that it’s impossible to get bored.’

He has since created a number of websites and apps mastering his HTML/CSS/JavaScript skills. He is now responsible for refining the CSS mechanisms of UI and making the interface render perfectly in every browser, as well as coming up with new UI solutions using his knowledge in creating animations with JavaScript/CSS. He was drawn to SoftwarePlant by the cutting-edge technology of Angular 2.0, which he is now learning to build SPA applications with.

After-hours he is a proud but exhausted father of a 4-year-old daughter with whom he loves to ice-skate and discover all there is to know about dinosaurs.
