I am a programmer with strong scientific background, owner of Cztery Bity. I'm currently working with Rigaku company, to help them create a new version of their software for X-ray diffraction. I also teach programming in C, C++ and Python at various levels of advancement. I have MA degree in Physics and PhD in Materials Sciences, and I was working as a researcher for 11 years. My experience as a programmer is based of my need (as a scientist) for data processing and visualization. As a trainer I have worked (either directly or through other companies) for Nokia, Intel, Autodesk, Ericpol, Tieto, Interia.pl and others. In my scientific career I was working with X-ray diffraction, using my home Institute lab equipment, visiting SAXS Beamline in Elettra Lab and Petra III Beamline at DESY. In my free time I'm involved in Software Carpentry foundation.
Very good knowledge of C++ 11/14 and Python. Good knowledge of C and Qt library. Basic proficiency in Pascal and Fortran.
Knowledge about teaching, and lots of practice in that field. Documentation preparation using Latex, Sphinx, Markdown, etc.
Good knowledge of x-ray diffraction techniques, especially texture and stress/strain measurement.
I'm currently working on software for analysis of X-ray diffraction data. Delivered the trainings for such companies as Nokia, Intel, Autodesk, Ericpol, Tieto, Interia.pl. Subjects varied from multithreading programming in C++ or Python, C++11 to advanced Python programming. Software Carpentry Traineer, first one in Poland.
Helping in creation of software for one of the biggest X-ray instrumentation manufacturer - Rigaku
Founded small company, Cztery Bity, focused on the delivery of C++/C/Qt/Python software and trainings.
Conducted trainings on Python, Qt, C, C++ programming, mostly for big software companies and corporations (Nokia, Intel).
Tutor in Noble Prog, conducted trainings on Linux administration and Linux security.
Researcher in field of X-ray diffraction, with emphasis on crystallographic texture and residual stress analysis. Experience in using and maintaining X-ray laboratory diffractometers, basic sample preparation. Created software for preparation of experiments and data treatment. Working with synchrotron radiation at DESY/HASYLAB PETRA III HEMS beamline and SAXS beamline in Elettra Laboratory.
Assistant Professor since 2008, Research Assistant and Researcher in Accredited Testing Laboratories, Laboratory of X-Ray Diffraction
