Andrzej is a highly motivated Android developer trying to be best at what he does. He is constantly learning new things and looking for more opportunities to grow his skills. He tries not to overcomplicate problems, keeping in mind that the code he writes is like a publication: It must be understandable and easy to read to as many people as possible. He's a big proponent of clean code and clean architecture. He's a UX-first thinker.
