Performance Engineer at Neo4j
For more than 20 years in the IT industry, as a database administrator, programmer, architect, manager and "onsite disaster engineer".
I took part in small, medium and large projects nonsense, under the principles of "Waterfall", Agile and in the absence of any methodologies, always with the same effect. What led me to the conclusion that no matter what you do, as long how you do it well, in the simplest possible way and use appropriate tools that do the work for you. In the meantime, I fell in love in the ideas of TDD and Software Craftsmanship, to the limits exploring beautiful in its simplicity ideas as REST and NoSQL, only to abandon them to explore the secrets of "systems thinking" and admire the strength that brings "metaphor" and discover that we are all objects in an eternal virtual machine.
Humble follower of the church of JVM, bytecode and JIT researcher, exploring all sorts of parsers, interpreters and compilers. From time to time you can hear my low-quality jokes about architecture at conferences in Poland. I am also author of a blog on http://geekyprimitives.com/, one of the founders of SegFault conferences brand and full time performance engineer at Neo4j.
