# Dawid Ciężarkiewicz aka dpc

My name is Dawid Ciężarkiewicz. Among many things, I'm a long time Open Source user and contributor, a software engineer by profession and passion.

I was born in Poland and moved to Silicon Valley in 2013, where I had the fortune to work with great people and awesome projects at companies like Nvidia, PacketZoom, Rubrik. I'm currently happily employed by BitGo where I help build and support blockchain-related products and infrastructure.

I've been programming since I was a kid, and my past experiences include Linux administration, networking, Linux and other operating systems kernel development, real-time applications, embedded systems, virtualization, distributed and p2p systems.

I enjoy reading about cybernetics and economics, researching programming languages and evaluating new, interesting software technologies, especially around p2p and distributed networks.

I am a big enthusiast of #Bitcoin and #Urbit, and a passionate #Rust programming language user.
