The Cogitator

Hi, I am Adam. I'm a pragmatic software engineer and I like to shave with Occam's Razor and find solutions which are robust and simple. Although I like tinkering with stuff and I embrace the Hacker mindset I also think that as an engineer my job is to focus on solving real problems.

I firmly believe that to do so we need to gather data, analyze and synthesize it and base decisions on what we know, thus the name of this site:

Cogitate
verb  think deeply about something; meditate or reflect.

The aim of this site is to share insight about technologies I touch during my work. If you have any questions or need help with something I have written about feel free to reach out:
