Choć nie jestem zbyt produktywnym blogerem, ten adres w sieci istnieje już przeszło pięć lat. Widać tu poniekąd różne etapy mojej kariery, posty o .net, o zdalnej pracy, o konferencjach, a ostatnio nawet o clojure.
Przez ostatnie około 10 postów próbowałem tu czegoś nowego - pisania po angielsku. Powodów było kilka, pozytywnych aspektów tego procederu także. Ale pojawiły się też przynajmniej dwa duże (dla mnie) problemy.

It’s not a secret that almost all of my professional career was related to C# and .Net technologies.
After some years I got fed up with how certain things worked in this “area” (maybe I will write about it someday) and decided to scratch all that and become junior again.

Today I would like to invite you to a conference that will be held in Łódź next week called DevForge.
It will be first time in Łódź and it’s being organized by Transition Technologies PSC, so hats off to them :)
The event will take place on 13th of April in ‘Odlewnia’ Piotrkowska 217.
Whole thing is not free, but the tickets are as cheap as 20 PLN and all that goes actually to charity (to a fundation called ‘Słonie na balkonie’) so you can’t go wrong here. You…

I’m GIT fan for years.
I was presenting it on a few occasions and even created a video course (sorry it’s only in Polish for the moment). But for all that time there was one piece of a puzzle missing in my setup.
I’m not a command line guru, but I prefer using it over clicking in the GUI.
GIT fits here perfectly, but I always had a problem with browsing through the logs. The git log command it pretty flexible and it can show you different kind of information, from just commit…

I’m a yes man.
I’m a yes man to a point that it starts to be just stupid.
You have some idea for IT event and need some help? OK!
You need to get big, three doors wardrobe on to the 3rd floor without an elevator? Count me in!
Damn, I caught myself lately on agreeing to pick up from the airport people I don’t know and get them to the event I’m not related to by any means.
And before you ask me for money - my default answer is NO now :)
At least that’s how I try to…

For past 4 years now, few days in September were reserved for developer fest - DevDay :) This year was different, but only a little.
So as hopefully everyone is already aware, DevDay is no more, but Michał and Rafał who were responsible for all previous editions had started new conference called DevConf. And if you met those Guys, you know you can’t go wrong with an event organized by them! So was it good?
Hell yes!
Name, logo and few details have changed, but DevConf proves that…

The pace in IT is unbelievable.
Sometimes I have a feeling that not reading my RSS/twitter/any other feed over the weekend would make me miss 2 new languages, 4 acronyms, 14 new javascript libraries and a lot of drama.
But that pace is not reflected in actual projects being run in IT.
We left simple html webpages and js applets long behind us. Software development is serious stuff now. And it became a vital point of many companies. I know projects planned for years ahead. Those that have version…

I was moving few of the sites I manage to HTTPS lately. I’ve messed up on one of the sites and I had to revert back to plain HTTP.
Ok, so I revert hosting configuration, enter url into Chrome address bar and…. Chrome shows errors and I see my site address over https. Refresh, same thing.
Hard refresh, still same.
Remove “s” from “https” in the address bar, still same situation.
“Aha! I have to have htaccess redirect on server” - no.
That made me…
