I'm Mate Papp, a Software Engineer, a lifelong learner and teacher, an Apple fanboy, a wannabe home barista, and a productivity nerd (= too lazy). Originally from Hungary, currently living in beautiful Barcelona, Spain with my beloved wife.
Beside of work, I enjoy spending time with my friends & family by traveling together, playing board games, or meeting to drink a great coffee or craft beer. Apart from that, a couple of my hobbies are visiting conferences and meetups (sometimes speak), music & podcasts, and playing any kind of team sports.
Transitioned to the Web Platform team within Glovo.
Moved to Barcelona.
Built the first version of matepapp.com website to learn and experiment with TailwindCSS and Next.js.
Partly, because of the pandemic we decided to shut down Cogito and look for other opportunities.
Left Supercharge in order to focus on Cogito full-time. I've lead the development team and helped building the foundations and product of Cogito.
Had my first & second Meetup talks, plus a workshop within the company about GraphQL in general, and for iOS Developers.
Moved to the Web team within Supercharge.
Graduated as a Computer Engineer BSc at Budapest University of Technology and Economics. My final thesis was the very early version of Cogito.
Officially founded our startup, Cogito with 5 friends of mine. Cogito is a community based, collaborative learning management platform mainly for universities. Initially, we participated in an incubator program, StartIT@K&H.
Joined one of the biggest digital agency in Hungary, Supercharge as an iOS Developer. I worked on several client projects, from huge mobile- & internet banking systems to small, early stage startup products.
Started a new job at Fornax ICT as an iOS Developer. Part of a cross-functional team, we were building enterprise level project- and resource management applications.
Started my professional career as an iOS Developer Intern (later Junior) part of POSSIBLE CEE.
Participated in UXStudio's Practice oriented UX & UI training program.
Started learning iOS application development in my free time.
