Michał Tajchert My life at a glance.

Entrepreneur and Android developer, passionate and eager to develop cutting edge apps - check out my Github, some of them turned out to be quite a success Kanarek, 12Hours, and co-created Pola.
Lately I focus on mobile startups - currently I'm involved in Yawn and Icelytics.
I love to think out side of the box and find new solutions to old problems - read my article 'How to study for exams' - featured also at Antyweb.
In my developer history I have done some apps for Sony Smartwatch, and Android Wear platform. Gadgets such Google Glass and Google Cardboard gave me an opportunity to make few ideas come true.
Also as I'm a Google Developer Group organizer I do many presentations about Android Development itself. Only in 2014 I gave over 20 talks and few workshops, locally and abroad as well.
Apart from all that I love to help others developers by creating Android libraries that accelerate process of creating an app and makes development a pleasure - such as WaitingDots, BusWear, or Nammu.

As code says more than 10k words (that's due to the loops), I encourage you to visit my Github page, or my Stack Overflow profile. Briefly speaking I'm quite good in Java, specialy on the Android platform.
In Polidea I worked on apps for clients such as: Dolby Labs, Philips, UScreen. That gave me an opportunity to understand client needs and as well practice Android development amongst best developers.
Earlier on I worked on Banamo - a secured social platform designed for mobile devices. As it was a startup apart from coding I was doing all sorts of work (hiring new team members, choosing technology etc.).
My most successful side project so far is 12Hours, Android widget that shows events from chosen calendar on a analog clock dial. In the first week after release it was downloaded over 30 000 times, with 1200 reviews (on avarage 4.5). It was selected as the best app of a month on AndroidPolice.com, as featured as well on many other Android portals.
Apart from strict coding I'm GDG organizer, and a Bitcoin enthusiast, both of them had a big influance on my programming projects.

I deeply believe that there is still a lot of knowledge hidden in out everyday data.
My projects on 'Quantified Self' field started with data analysis of typing patters and recognizing owner of the phone during studies on PJATK, analyzing 5 years old relationship with my girlfriend - 4k text messages, 85k online messages, and 240m characters, and lately I have published an article about 'How to study for exams' - featured later on Antyweb - using Wikipedia as a trend marker for exam topics.
Also I collected and analyzed over 10k games on Steam platform and 2m users, with many details (country/region/time spend in each game and so on).
I find it very interesting for me to play with such datasets and look for any interesting outcome that can put some light on our behavior.

Some time ago I was one of early adopters even among developer of wearable devices. I have developed few apps for Sony Smartwatch 2 - Paste&Share, QR Codes and more.
Also I'm still a huge fan of Google Glass as perfect playground for developers, I wrote few apps - all are available on Github.
For example:
PJWSTK - shows students schedule for next 7 days, and inform about time till end of the lesson.
Karaoke - shows lyrics for playing karaoke directly on your Glass.
Wallet - allows to add expenses and manage them, selecting amount is done by head movement!
Dance - teaches you how to dance particular dance, by showing it steps one-by-one.
