  • ADOP Sp. z o.o. logo

    Programmer & DB designer Employer: ADOP Sp. z o.o., Torun, Poland Technologies:  MySQL, MS Access, VBA, Silverlight Type of contract: a contract of employment Ending cause: mainly because I got a better job opportunity

    This is another one of the most relevant jobs I have got so far.

    I was developing ERP, CRM, data- & document-flow, warehouse, resource and energy management applications using MySQL as a database system, MS Access & VBA as a UI interface.
    We created many applications for big companies, manufacturers and factories. For example, we needed to create stored procedures and functions for predicting a resource consumption based on many parameters: a shape of products, quantities of chemical ingredients, power usage etc..

    Especially challenging was the last project during which we made two applications for two big international companies, Elana and Torsoft, because of the lack of workforce and a very strict and short timetable:

    • the first application for production and resource management,
    • the other one for energy production and costs management.

    In the last two weeks of the project I worked for ~11 hours a day but with determination, organizational skills and hard work my team and I did the job.

    What is more, I was also helping my boss during the implementation of our systems in two big factories. I was responsible for presenting our solution and helping final users to navigate their new system, solving and explaining all the occurring issue. Because I am a polite, helpful and open person, who is able to present his knowledge and experience to others I was able to help contractor's employees working with their new system and everything went well in the process.

    We finished the project with a great success but it was a very hard time for me. Still, I enjoyed the possibility to create such big projects, I really liked having contact with final users by obtaining their opinions and sharing my knowledge with them.

    Web application programmer Employer: FH MIM, Torun, Poland Technologies:  PHP, MySQL, xHTML, JavaScript Type of contract: volunteering Ending cause: finished the project

    I consider this project as the most important one in my career not only because it was the first one I have ever made, but also because it made me who I am today - a web developer, a programmer, a database designer and administrator.

    F.H. MIM is my parents' company. I worked there to get on with resource management and to see how small company works from inside. I needed this knowledge because of my MSc degree thesis project to create an administration panel for a warehouse with PHP and MySQL.

    I confronted dozens of challenges during the process of creating the application. I had not known PHP before, I did not have experience with CSS and designing and my knowledge of designing databases and developing applications using MySQL was weak. But I had a clear goal ahead of me which I wanted to accomplish. The strength of character, dedication, always trying to do my best were the skills which made it possible to finish the project and almost immediately after that I was able to obtain a job in ADOP.

    Business Process Support Department Employer: Nestle, Torun, Poland Technologies: MS Access, SQL, VBA, MS Excel Type of contract: a contract for a specific task Ending cause: very low salary (~80EUR/month), started my MSc project

    I worked in a Polish department of Nestle in Torun in Business Process Support Department.

    My main duties were to administer a department's local MS Access database containing information about sales, contractors, products etc. and calculate reports in MS Excel, VBA and in SAP web application.

    Apart from that, I created an application for correction of contractor data. I had to analyse a big dataset with information about over 300 000 companies in order to automatically find and correct or remove duplicated data. I developed VBA and SQL scripts which analysed data, marked possible duplicates and showed results to a user who verified them if needed. The analysis was done based on regular expressions, addresses, phone numbers etc.. I found that there were 100 000 unique records.

  • Inter-tel logo

    Programmer & DB designer Employer: Inter-tel, Torun, Poland Technologies: SQL, MS Access, MS Excel, VBA Type of contract: internship Ending cause: end of internship

    During my MSc degree studies, I decided to get my first job in IT. I started with an internship in a small 3-month project for Inter-tel company.

    INTER-TEL used MS Excel files as main documents to store relevant information about their services. Depending on the type of service the forms looked slightly different, but also they can have different fields in the same type of service by removing unused fields and/or adding a new type of information.

    The idea was to create an application which reads MS Excel files with forms, moves all data to the database and recreates MS Excel forms in MS Access by automatic generation of forms using VBA.

    More information about my automatic MS Access forms generation from custom Excel documents can be found in Portfolio Applications section and here.

Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun
Faculty of Physics, Astronomy & Informatics

Thesis: Database and Internet Technologies for e-Commerce (MySQL and PHP)
2010-02 - 2011-10

Almost till the end of my engineering studies, I did not know what I wanted to do in my future life until I finished a course about MS Office during which I created a database with SQL. I enjoyed this so much because it was very creative, I knew there are millions of possibilities to where databases can be used for and I felt that with creating, designing and administrating databases there cannot be any place for boredom as there were so many things to learn. At that moment I decided that I want to do something from scratch therefore, I suggested my own idea to my supervisor for a project. Because my parents have a small company, I proposed a topic of creating an administration panel for a warehouse.

I confronted dozens of challenges during the process of creating the application. I had not known PHP before, I did not have experience with CSS and designing and my knowledge of designing databases and developing applications using MySQL was weak. But I had a clear goal ahead of me which I wanted to accomplish.

The system included the following:

  • creating new products, producers, orders (in & out), customers,
  • every product can be described by any feature and category previously created in the system,
  • creating reports of day-to-day sales and purchases in specified category/product/producer/client and then export them to PDF file,
  • possibility to print invoices,
  • the whole panel was created to be the admin panel of an online shop, but there was no time to create a client-side website.

Thesis documents are in Portfolio Documents section and here. More about this project can be found in Portfolio Websites section and here.

Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun
Faculty of Physics, Astronomy & Informatics

Thesis: Set-up for electroluminescence measurements
2006-10 - 2010-02

My task was to build an application which measures electroluminescence phenomenon. Results of this project (an application and a measurement setup) are commonly used by students of my Faculty.

From this very project, I learnt LabVIEW which I used in my future career during my collaboration with Nicolaus Copernicus University Faculty of Physics and an OBIG research group a few years later.

Thesis documents are in Portfolio Documents section and here. More about this project can be found in Portfolio Applications section and here.

Photography

I consider myself an amateur photographer and graphic designer.

I've created 3 event logos, posters and flyers which can be viewed in Portfolio Graphics section.

I never leave my camera behind when I travel so I do not miss a chance to capture a moment, especially beautiful panoramic views.
I recommend my Galleries section to see beautiful views.

I also manipulate with images to make them look better, e.g. by erasing unwanted things from them, correcting colours and using filters. See example image below, more in Portfolio Graphics section and here.

Management

During my Master's Degree studies I was helping my mother in her company. I was learning how a small company works. I used learnt knowledge in my Master's Degree application called Administration panel for warehouse management.

This experience also helped me in my next jobs and taught me how to manage time, resources, money and small business.

In 2012/2013 I was a vice-president of NCU OSA Student Chapter. During this time I organized two conferences (OPTO Meeting 2013 and IONS-14 / Torun) a competition (more about it in a report of OPTO Meeting & IONS-14) and educational trips for children. You can read more about those activities in other sections of this page.

During academic year 2013/2014, I was the president of the same organization. That year my colleagues and I organized three competitions and educational trips.

During those 2 years, I learnt how to organize and manage big events and how to manage human resources.

Organizing

In 2013 as a vice-president of NCU OSA Student Chapter my wife and I organized two big international conferences at Nicolaus Copernicus University Faculty of Physics:

We were managing a small group of people (3 persons). Even with such a small group of people (including us), we were able to organize two four-day events for about 80 participants plus 15 guests, during which we arranged social meetings, coffee-breaks, lunches, trips, competitions, lab-tours, workshops and much more.

At the beginning, we didn't have any resources and money, but at the end, we had enough to host all people and had the patronage of such companies like:

Both events turned out to be a great success. You can read about them in our final report.

2013 & 2014 was a year when our Faculty chapters organized two tournaments of Khet 2.0 with official support from game's creators.

First took place during OPTO Meeting 2013 & IONS-14 / Torun conferences. You can read our official report about our Khet 2.0 tournament.

The second one was organized in winter on 26th February 2014.

Taking part

During OPTO Meeting 2013 & IONS-14 / Torun conferences I also took part in organizing a very creative event which was "Optical Hare and Hounds" - a city game for our participants.

More about this edition of the game can be read in our conferences report.

After a great success of the aforementioned game, we decided to organize a 2nd edition - "Scavenger Hunt" - for all residents of our city, Torun.

More than 100 people signed up to play our game. Preparation took us a lot of time, stress and strength, but we were extremely happy and satisfied with the final result of our game and so did participants!

Our chapter takes part in many actions & events. We mostly teach young people aged from kindergarten-level age to high-school teenagers that physics is fun!

We do so by organizing workshops, travels, festivals, competitions, etc..

I took part in many actions of this kind and had fun doing it.

travelling

Even if I consider myself as a stay-at-home person I like travelling very much!

I love seeing new places, especially observing nature & changes of human history. During my adventures, I always try to capture images of the world around me with my camera so when I come back to them I can recall those interesting places I've been to.

In Galleries section you can see some of the places I've visited. If you like any of my photos, feel free to write to me and ask for Hi-Res versions.
