Jakub Wasielak

Python Developer in Kraków, Polska

Hire me

I'm an Engineering Manager and Python developer focused on community.

I've successfully gathered a team of developers and designers to implement Cozato - an environment-focused non-profit service for local item exchange. The project won an incubation program but then was put on hold because of lack of funding.

I'm a member, common speaker and organiser of Kraków's Python group called Pykonik. Since 2014 I run various, regular meetings, like tech talks, dojos and open spaces with an audience of 50-100 attendees.

I've created a professional video-course called Automatic tests in Python - unit tests for beginners with a rating of 4.5 and around 3000 sold copies (Polish only).

I take place and run hackathons, with a biggest success in winning and implementing a solution for entertainment and educational app for institution which cares for mentally disabled.

For four consecutive years I've been a coordinator and contributor of Python Challenge competition on PyConPL conference, where over hundred attendees tries to solve prepared riddles.

In year 2017 I've co-organised Koderek, a conference and hackathon focused on interesting kids with programming. This event has been successful and will be repeated in future.

In the spare time I'm a fantasy lover, LARP player and coordinator of convention called Fornost and Krak-ON.

Few of my talks:

- "Unit testing Python code (with a lot of py.test)" at 4Developers Kraków 2018

- "Python Packaging" at EuroPython 2017

- "Python Packaging" at 4Developers 2017
