Filip Hnízdo



I'm Filip Hnízdo (pronounced "Nest") a writer, musician, computer thing developer and trainer born in Prague, Czech Republic and living in London, United Kingdom.

I currently work as a web developer and spend my time away from work writing (short stories, songs and poems), composing and sometimes performing music, mentoring young people at wonderful places like Coder Dojo London and making things on the web for myself and others (perhaps you).

Have a look around and get in touch via email, Twitter or telephone (UK) 07973532956 about anything that isn't spam (things relating to spam, if interesting, are very welcome).

Current hometime projects

  • Writing a short musical play about a planet with plans


I wrote a short story in emoji.

A markup library for creating dynamic stories relative to a reader's place, time, location, weather and perhaps more. Built using the Foursquare and OpenWeatherMap APIs. Here is a collection of six stories by six writers using the system.

Extended Play is a series of eternal compositions. Each is based on a collection of instruments playing five patterns of three seconds each. These patterns (aside from untuned percussion instruments) have been transposed into twelve musical keys and play randomly.
