About Me

Want to know some­thing about me? Well this is the right place to get it, right from the source.

My name is Tomasz Bog­dal, but I’m also some­times known as QueezyThe­Great. As you may have read and guessed, I am a fairly tech­ni­cal per­son. Give me some­thing to play with, and I’ll take it apart and fig­ure out how it’s built. This curios­ity is what dri­ves my entire life, solv­ing puz­zles and find­ing answers is what I love.

What do I do?

So what do you get when you com­bine curios­ity with a thirst for knowl­edge? Well, in my case a Soft­ware Engi­neer. That’s what I do dur­ing the day, write and design soft­ware for a liv­ing. I work mainly on Linux soft­ware, for the desk­top, server and embed­ded devices, it all depends on the task. But my tal­ents reach far and wide, C/C++, Python, Java, Bash… If I don’t know it, I’ll learn and mas­ter it. My own per­sonal motto.

If I don’t know it, I’ll learn and mas­ter it.

As I like learn­ing, over the years I have acquired a impres­sive set of diverse tal­ents. One day I may be debug­ging some­thing writ­ten in low-level C, then the next day I could be doing HTML and JavaScript. They call these peo­ple T-Shaped and I like Valve’s ver­sion of what it means. 

Elec­tron­ics, mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing, psy­chol­ogy, ani­ma­tion and 3D mod­el­ing are some of my hob­bies. Depend­ing on what inter­ests me at the moment, I do that until I get bored. Find­ing new sub­jects to learn is of no short supply.

Where did I learn this?

Most of the stuff I learned was by myself. When some­thing inter­ested me, I just started read­ing… By the end of my obses­sion with the sub­ject, I’d usu­ally become a mas­ter at it. Bit by bit, over the years, I became a Jack of All Trades, branch­ing from one sub­ject to another.

For­mal edu­ca­tion always bored me, it was never the thing I wanted to learn at the moment. I could never learn some­thing with­out see­ing a direct appli­ca­tion for it. My mind always raced when some­thing new was being taught at school… Why am I learn­ing this, where will this help me.

I’m prac­ti­cal and prag­matic at heart, with a slight hint of per­fec­tion­ism. I learn some­thing when there is a need for it, oth­er­wise what is the point. Don’t get me wrong, hav­ing that infor­ma­tion is always help­ful and gives you a big­ger view on the world… But if you know you will never use that infor­ma­tion, why waste your time as you will for­get it anyways.

My Work

I love Open Source and when you mix in some hard­ware then that’s even bet­ter! Some of my work can be seen on GitHub, while oth­ers are tucked behind the doors of the com­pa­nies I’ve worked for. My last con­tri­bu­tion to the world was Arduino CMake, which is still active and slowly grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity.

Other things have never been pub­lished, and have been for­got­ten by time. This blog is my try at shar­ing with world some of my thoughts and wis­dom. Hope­fully my work will have a slight impact on the world… Who knows maybe it will cause a But­ter­fly Effect.
