About me

Hi! My name is Marek Fořt and I am thrilled to have you here 🙂

I am currently a production engineer at Shopify. I have passion for open-source, Swift, building stuff ✨ - but most importantly of all, helping and talking with people! At the moment, I am living in Prague, so if you ever happen to visit this beautiful city, feel free to approach me and we can have a chat over coffee ☕️

Otherwise, I am fairly active on Twitter and of course you can reach me via email, too! I am more than happy to talk about anything, it does not have to be Swift or even development-related 🖤

I try to work in the open as much as I can - you could checkout my Github to see what I am working on. The project I am most active in is tuist which is a great tool extracting away complexities of Xcode projects, letting you focus on actually building your apps.

This project has been a great source of inspiration for me, now I am a proud core maintainer of this repository that was founded by Pedro who is a great person and I have learnt a lot from him.

Me at my parents' cottage.

I also like to have fun.
