Hello world!

My name is Łukasz Szkup. I live on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. I work as a Full-Stack Developer.

I have been programming for many years. My first encounter with programming was when I turned 13. I received my first computer from my uncle, a Commodore 64, and I quickly mastered my first programming language - BASIC. A few months later I got familiar with Assembler. In both languages, I wrote my first computer game on that machine.

When I was 15 my parents bought me my first PC. It gave me an amazing opportunity to learn new languages, like Pascal, C and C++. Additionally, I got interested in programming competitions, both individual and group ones, where I was willingly checking and improving my skills. When I managed to get to the final in one of such competitions, it gave me a free pass to most of the universities in Poland. And then I chose the Computer Science Institute at the University of Wrocław.

I started my professional career between the 3rd and 4th year of my studies (November 2002). Since then I have been constantly programming, designing software and gaining experience in this area.
