Nerd Management – podcast and youtube series about leadership

I invite you to check out the Nerd Management initiative I started with my colleague from eMAG, Paweł Rekowski. It is a podcast and youtube series, in which we discuss various leadership-related subjects, especially those of interest for future or newly appointed leaders.

Paweł and I had dozens of interesting discussions about leadership and we though – why not record it, for the benefit of others. Hopefully – you will like it 🙂 Go to https://nerd.management/ now and subscribe to the newsletter to stay up to date!

7 steps to effective writing – my talk on Boiling Frogs 2018 conference

In March 2018 I gave a talk on Boiling Frogs 2018 – the software craftsmanship conference in Poland. In the talk titled “Share your knowledge and build your personal brand: 7 steps to effective writing” I spoke to IT professionals and enthusiasts on how they can share their knowledge or ideas and promote their personal brand at the same time. The room was full and, hopefully, I was able to inspire some of the attendees to try their luck in the field of educational writing and speaking about what they know.

New book about Apache Thrift published

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.
