Andrzej Grzesik

I write code because I like it! Most often not far from JVM, somewhere deep inside, near systems with large numbers of users or BigData as that most often means there are non-trivial (interesting!) problems to solve. At the same time, I profess the principle that most software problems start long before any keyboard is even touched. Apart from that I speak at, organise conferences and meets, cycle and read!

Jarosław Pałka

In the IT industry for more than 15 years, as a database administrator, programmer, architect, manager and “disaster recovery engineer”. Took part in small, medium and stupendously vast projects executed in the waterfall model, pursuant to Agile methods or without any methodology whatsoever and always with the same outcome. Which led him to the conclusion that it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you do it well, in the simplest possible manner and using correct tools which will do the work for you. In the meantime he allowed himself to be swept off his feet by TDD and Software Craftmanship concepts, took REST and NoSQL ideas, such beautiful in their simplicity, to their extremes, to then abandon them in order to discover the secrets of "system thinking” and be flabbergasted by the power of the “metaphor” and to find out that we are governed by the same laws of “nature”. Rebellious follower of the JVM faith, researcher of bytecode, JIT and all sorts of parsers, interpreters and compliers. From time to time one can come across his lectures across the whole of Poland. At Allegro.tech on a daily basis, http://symentis.pl trainer and author of the http://geekyprimitives.wordpress.com/ blog in his spare time.
