A tester by avocation and vocation. Bartosz loves software development so much that whenever he thinks he has something interesting to say, he wants to share it with audience: at conferences, meetups or on his blog.

Jarosław has spent last 15 years of his professional life in IT working as a database and system administrator, developer, architect, manager and “on site disaster engineer“. He was involved in many projects, conducted in “waterfall”, agile to “no methodology” methodology. It all led him to the conclusion that it does not matter what you do as long as you do it right, keep it simple and use the right tool to do the job for you.

He dropped them in order to find out more about “system thinking”, to admire “metaphor” and to discover that they are both driven by the same laws of nature. A defiant follower of JVM, bytecode, JIT as well as parsing, interpreters and compilers. A trainer at Symentis, the author of a blog, self-styled dictator at the programme committees of JDD and 4Develpers conferences.
