This site is a personal experiment of mine.
Although I have little spare time, because of my work, family and friends duties (you know: Work hard, play hard… shop for things to eat), I wanted to share an write down some thoughts that are going through my mind. I do not expect anyone to read this stuff, I do it mostly for my selfish, narcissistic self ;).
For starters. I keep a lot of notes and knowledge base like stuff, in a few places, emails, Google notebook, bookmarks. I wanted to organize them and keep them for future use, so I won’t repeat mistakes. If keepeing them here will help someone else, that’s great!
I’m a lazy type of a person, I heard that’s the inventor kind, also I’m a Trekkie (what programmer geek isn’t), so I’d wish for the world to be a better place. Because of that I sometimes have and idea about things that could make life simpler. I bet some of this stuff was/will be invented by someone else but still they where also my original ideas. I have decided to blog them down.
About the author
My name is Janusz Skonieczny. I live in Warsaw, Poland.
I am a programmer by heart. Currently I hold a CTO position in a Polish small software company, Qualent Software.
I have almost 7 years of experience working in IT, most of this time I worked as a professional developer. I have experience in Enterprise Java and Microsoft .NET. I have worked on and lead project teams designing, developing and deploying software solutions in most of Polish telecommunication providers and biggest banks.
I like Agile Development direction. I cannot say that everything I do is agile, but I certainly use a few practices in my every day work.
For a couple of years I have specialized in Microsoft .NET and C# development – all kinds and flavours: Win Forms, ASP.NET, Mobile. Enterprise IT Infrastructure is the business area that I mostly do stuff. Identity Management & Administration is the area that often keeps coming back.
