Janusz Skonieczny

My name is Janusz Skonieczny. I live in Warsaw, Poland.

I am a programmer by heart. I currently work as a freelance web developer under Brave Labs sp. z o.o. company.

I work as a professional software developer since the famous year 2000. I have experience in Enterprise Java, Microsoft .NET and Python. I have worked on and lead project teams in designing, developing and deploying software solutions in most of Polish telecommunication providers and few of the Polish biggest banks.

I like Agile Development direction, and I am trying stay agile in my day-to-day work.

Although I started in enterprise solutions field, I am currently more focused on internet and Cloud based services. Few years back 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 did stuff. Identity Management & Administration is the area that often keeps coming back.

Currently I mostly work in Python on SaaS web applications running on Google App Engine.

For a couple of years I was holding CTO position in a small software companies. In Internetium I have designed and introduced a software production process that was agile yet it was ISO 9001:2000 certified. Then I co-founded software house Qualent Sofware where I was responsible for pretty much running the company.

After a while I have decided to change an environment scale down, and do stuff that I really liked — sorry endless meetings are not that 😉 — and get to spend more time with my family — working in home rocks 😉

My area of professional interest is software quality, development automation, reliable and repeatable process, team motivation and other things that are related to project management. I’m also interested in applying all the IT goodies in the education, hence my leading project, web based grade book and and student information system: www.Dziennik.edu.pl

I hold various certificates:

  • Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform (SCJP).
  • Microsoft Certified Solution Developer (MCSD) for Microsoft .NET
  • Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD) for Microsoft .NET
  • Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA) for Microsoft SQL Server 2000
  • PRINCE2 Foundation
