In September 2017 I attended Rethink! Internet of Retail Minds 2017 conference in Hamburg as a moderator of discussion panel (I will write more on that later). Before the conference I was interviewed about my views on the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence in retail and e-commerce. If you wish to read the interview – click “Continue” below.
In April 2017 I gave a talk on 4developers 2017 – the largest IT conference in Poland. In the talk titled “How to write. Craftman’s guide” I encouraged IT people to not only write code, but also write articles, posts and books to share their knowledge with their peers.
See additional materials here (in Polish).
From time to time there’s a situation when you have some innovative idea or recently acquired some skill. It definitely did cost you some time and effort. Why not share it with others? Preparing your thoughts for the public consumption helps you organize your knowledge, review the possible flaws and put your idea up for the peer review.
In my recent article in eMAG TechLabs blog I share my techniques that are helpful when you want to put your thoughts on paper (actual or virtual one).
I encourage you to check out my recent article Effective communication in software development projects – in 7 easy steps published in the eMAG TechLabs – the tech blog of the company that I work for as a Software Development hub manager.
In this article I present seven easy rules that you should take into consideration if you want to improve communication in your projects – not only IT related. It is based on my previous experience married with the culture and experience of eMAG.

In 2011 I prepared a tutorial on Apache Thrift, which was as transcript of my exploration of this great framework. In the first half of 2015 I was approached by Packt Publishing to write a book in their “Learning” series, to serve as an introduction to Apache Thrift.
I am proud to announce, that after over half year of hard work the book was published. It is available in the paperback and ebook formats, from the publisher’s website, on Amazon and some brick-and-mortar bookstores in English-speaking world. If you would like to learn about the Apache Thrift framework I recommend my book, which is the first (and currently only) publication of this kind.
The book is available from:
If you read this book and have any questions or concerns – please don’t hesitate to contact me – I’d be happy to help.
Recently I took part in the first event called WarszawQA – organized by the community of people interested in Quality Assurance in Warsaw. I gave a talk about basics of effective communication in the IT projects.
Alfred 2 is awesome productivity application for Mac OS X. It allows you to quickly search files, navigate web, run applications and many more. One of the great features of Alfred are workflows – custom actions, that can be triggered (and programmed) by the user.
As a solution to my frequent need of calculating the exchange rates between currencies, I made an Alfred 2 workflow that allows to do exactly that, using Google-like syntax, for example:
rate 123 USD in EUR
will yield result:
