About me

Read my books!
Visit "Practical Unit Testing"

to learn about writing great unit tests with JUnit, TestNG and Mockito

My name is Tomek Kaczanowski. I live in Kraków (Poland). I am test-infected and I hope to be very contagious. :)

I was a speaker at few conferences, including Geecon, 33rd Degree, Confitura and JDays, JUG meetings, and occasionally wrote few articles.
I used to be involved in Gradle community. I'm not a committer there, but I helped by taking care of some parts of documentation (i.e. Gradle cookbook), and testing latest snapshots.

This blog is dedicated to my various coding activities (Java, testing, Gradle etc.). I try not to increase the information smog, so you should expect not very frequent, but hopefully interesting posts here.

Feel free to contact me by mail.

While creating blog posts I use various tools like Drupal, Intellij IDEA, Clker.com, Inkscape, Gimp & XMind. They are all free and really, really useful. Kudos to people who develop them!

The motto of this blog is taken from John Carmack:

"Programming is not a zero-sum game. Teaching something to a fellow programmer doesn't take it away from you. I'm happy to share what I can, because I'm in it for the love of programming."

There is also one open-source project that I develop. It is called Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma Library. If you are into the game theory then give it a try.

Feel free to contact me by mail. You can find more info about me at linkedin. See also my BlackBeltFactory profile, read my CV, see my code snippets on pastebin.

I hope you'll find some useful information on my blog.

After all development years, I'm still a pathetic yellow belt on JBB, lol :)
