Dariusz Cichowski

Software Developer for hire

What sort of code do you despise?

By this you are truly known.


Who am I?


I'am a PHP developer and a board games enthusiast.
Few years back I became a huge Laravel Framework fan and I use it ever since.

For the past over a dozen years I worked for small business, big firms and on my own projects. I still enjoy writing code and want to keep it that way. Every week I learn something new that improves my work and that's really amazing. Lines of code should not only work properly but also can and should look pleasing to the eye. That's where the joy of programming come from.
