Hello world! I'm Charalambos - software developer, tech enthusiast, passionate gamer and avid problem-solver. I always try to explore new technologies and do something different in every project I manage, supercharging my skills and learning along the way.
For the past year I've been focusing mainly on developing web-based solutions using cloud technologies, particularly with Microsoft Azure.
I'm also writing about practical development solutions at thecodewrapper.com.
In 2017, i've co-founded an indie game development studio called Evistoria Games. In December 2018, we've had our first game called You Shall Not Break! released on Steam and started pre-production on our next game called Yenefan, both build using Unreal Engine 4.
Whatever free time I manage to squeeze out of my day I spend developing content/plugins for Unreal Engine 4 and Unity, and vigorously playing catch-up with the ever-changing world of technology.
