Jakub Nabrdalik

Team Leader at Allegro, Poland

For the last 15 years I worked in software houses and large enterprises creating dedicated applications for external and internal customers in languages like Groovy, Java, Kotlin, C#, PHP, and using plethora of technologies. I did everything from analysis, programming, modeling, architecture, coaching to managing projects. That’s what you usually call a developer these days. Some of the systems, I’ve worked on, include Mobile Banking, Finance, Telco, eCommerce, Data Management Systems, Content Management Systems and Enterprise Resource Planning.

I built an IT branch of a corporation in Poland, from the scratch, which I’ve grown to 50 people and managed for 2 years, hiring people, designing development and support processes, empowering self-organized teams, coordinating with development centers in other countries, driving big changes and setting up a proper hacker culture.

My main interests are in Domain Driven Design and Test/Behaviour Driven Development, which I’ve practiced since 2005, gave a lot of talks on conferences and workshops, and wrote some articles. I love Software Craftsmanship, the serious, responsible, scientific and pragmatic approach to development.

I gave more than 60 public talks and workshops on conferences, universities and user groups, both Polish and international, helped to organize a few from scratch, shape a few by being in program committees. I was one of the leaders of Warsaw Java User Group, Warsaw Groovy User Group, Warsaw Spring Labs.

My focus is on software development. I’m very direct, down to earth kind of guy. Expect nothing but harsh truth.
