About me

Im from Gdańsk, Poland. Most of my professional life revolves around JVM and developer communities - I'm a serial Java User Groups organizer and a bad conference speaker (please, please don't look up my talks). Privately - if you give me a chance I'll speak your ear off. I can promise a wide range of subjects for the discussion, though - like:

  • JVM,
  • software architecture,
  • Lucene and related search technologies
  • everyday technology,
  • few things I forgot to grow out of like games, comic books and cartoons,
  • sci-fi/fantasy books and movies,
  • murder mysteries (fictional ones),
  • which one is the best pony (Rainbow Dash, obviously),
  • why bullet lists are fun and good for everything.

I have a wife Anna and two children - Jakub (3yo) and Julia (9yo). Those are coincidentally two of the most popular names in Poland, which makes calling them on playgrounds fun.

My work

I'm a part of Search team, working on Search and WDQS at Wikimedia Foundation.
