UnalignedByte is a single-person mobile development studio (a.k.a. me).
Since starting working as a freelancer I thought that having a brand which I could work under is a cool idea. I got a logo designed, built a website, set up a company email, and bought a coffee machine. I guess I can call myself a startup now. I can't remember exactly when and how I came up with the name, but I started using it for my GitHub page, Apple Developer profile, and finally set up a company for freelancing purposes called UnalignedByte.
Hi, my name is Rafał Grodziński, I am mobile developer and the author of this website.
I've been interested in software development ever since I got my first computer, which was back in 2001. Over the years I dabbled in a number of different technologies, for example Win32 programming, OpenGL, building linux kernels, writing games in assembly, or making games. On the way I learned how to use Pascal, C, C++, C#, Java, x86 assembly, bash, Unix and plenty of different tools.
I got into iOS development during my last year of university, back in 2010. Because I didn't have a MacBook at the time, my first real contact with iOS (and Apple ecosystem in general) was in a form of a hackintosh. It was a bumpy start, including audio which would stop working after 30min, or in-operational wired Ethernet. However, through perseverance and sheer joy of making mobile apps, I learned what creation of mobile apps is all about.
My professional iOS development career started in 2012 when I landed my first iOS development job in Kraków. In 2013 I moved to London where I'm still residing. Since January 2018 I've been a freelance mobile developer, working on many different projects.
