Recommendations

"Kamil has a beautiful, developer mind. He is also special talented in communication. Listening to his lecture is a real pleasure, even, if you don't know the issue very well. Kamil is conflict-free person, but he is always ready to defent his own opinion, using specific, substantive arguments. His point of view helped my team work better for more then fiew times."

Justyna Wydra, Communication Manager, Chilid

"Kamil is a talented, disciplined front-end developer who uses his knowledge of the latest technologies to deliver nearly bug-free code. He has an attention to visual detail which is rare in a developer. On the first project I worked with him on, he took a great deal of creative direction from us and implemented it well. There were a number of technical limitations and challenges with a back-end system that was less than fully developed or even robustly thought through. However, he worked with those challenges to produce results that exceeded our expectations and stuck with the project till everything was functioning perfectly."

Jeremy Stover, Sr. Learning Consultant: Coaching and Leadership

"Kamil is a professional that is super sharp in his knowledge always on the latest trends, I learnt a lot from him about JavaScript among other things, we share the same views on software craftsmanship and he is truly one of a kind when it comes to get a project done. He is a very valuable member of any team; he makes the team great, he writes high quality software without cutting any corners, fast!. I would get him in my team anytime I could"

Juan Manuel Combetto, Technical Lead and Senior Web Developer, 20th Century Fox




"Do you need to build some Rich Internet Application? Make use of some fancy new JavaScript framework? Or maybe you wish to use Responsive Web Design approach for your site? In all those (and many other) cases, Kamil has already been there, done that and has al the skills that are needed. Given that and the fact that he is also skilled in other fields (like PHP programming, including MVC frameworks, templating systems etc.) as well as being a cheerful, reliable and communicative person, he should be considered highly valuable asset in any development team. I had a pleasure of working with Kamil and I definetly will be looking forward to cooperating with him again."

Mariusz Bak, Senior Software Developer, XSolve

"Kamil is a very talented front-end developer who always presents can-do attitude. He is very passionate on what he is doing and can share his passion with co-workers. Always stays on the cutting edge, keeping up with the latest market's trends. Kamil is very skilled in JavaScript development, as well as in Responsive Web Design and HTML/CSS."

Wojciech Sznapka, Technical Manager, XSolve

"Kamil writes concise code that is easy to read and high quality. He goes the extra mile to solve problems and give detailed answers to questions. A great guy to work with."
