A spare pair of Python-programming hands

Pawel Przeradowski
Hello all,

I hope you don't mind I am posting this here. I've seen people posting job offers here so I thought it might be a good idea to post a job request here.

My name is Pawel and I am a 25 year old expat living in Amsterdam for about a year now. I've been working here as a Senior Web Developer last year where I was responsible for key design decisions. I left my previous job hoping to find some Python-oriented software houses.

My main area of interest is Python ecosystem along with its various implementations like Jython and IronPython apart from canonical cPython. I've been using Python for 4 years now. Lately I've been looking a lot into PyPy and made it my host implementation for daily usage. I am closely tracing their progress in speed-ups, JIT, numpy and Python 3 implementation effort.

I did several Python web projects. My favourite development stack in this area is based on Pyramid, Mako, beaker and sqlalchemy. I am using virtualenv and pip to manage my dependencies. Apart from sever-side work I am capable of slicing and doing all the front-end work. I am a HTML5 evangelist, proficent with CSS and accompanying browser rendering issues on different platforms. jQuery, backbone.js and modernizr are my friends.

I am a perfectionist. My goal is to write clear, scalable and documented code. All code I write runs seamlessly on Python 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.1, 3.2 with single code base sometimes using "polyfills" like six library. I use tox with nose to run my test-code on different version and different implementations (like PyPy) keeping an eye on coverage above 90%. I can also write selenium web driver tests and use Jenking/buildbot for continuous integration. I am capable of writing narrative and generating api documentation. I've been using Sphinx and restructured text to accomplish this. All code I commit is PEP-8 compliant. I use pyflakes to detect dead code. I know even and odds of setuptools, distutils and distribute. I am used to Agile development patterns with release cycles based on branches, merges, rebases and forks. I've been using Mercurial and Git for versioning.

I have strong functional and OO background trying to accurately mix both styles according to problem that needs to be solved. I've been always following Zen of Python in this area preferring easy solutions to complex problems.

I have experience with programing and marinating broad variety of database systems like PostgreSQL, MySQL and more. These days I prefer noSQL system more where MongoDB is my favourite as it feels much more appropriate for python philosophy than relation databases.

Besides Python I am proficient with C/C++. I frequently weave both with help of ctypes. I of course know SQL and pg/plsql. I did large codebase in PHP. I also eagerly program in JavaScript.

I am long-time UNIX-based OS user. I can administer and monitor Linux based machines. I am familar and a big fan of Amazon Web Services. I've been using Amazon EC2, EBS, S3, SES, VPC a lot both at my previous job and privately.

For some code, test examples check out my Open Source project Pystacia (http://liquibits.bitbucket.org/). It's a Python raster graphic processing library. The repository is located here: https://bitbucket.org/liquibits/pystacia/src.

Some more tags and technologies: SEO optimization, Facebook API, Twitter API, Zencoder, Red5, WebSockets, gevent, cloud, distributed programming, messaging, AMQP

I hope I explained the set of skills I posses pretty well. If you feel there is a job for me in your company please contact me back or respond below.

Kind regards,

Pawel Piotr Przeradowski

Pawel,

In some online situations new people are requested to introduce  
themselves when joining a group. That was a fine introduction. :)

Are you going to the next Python Users Nederland meeting?

It'll be held on wednesday 15 February 2012 at ABC Treehouse in  
Amsterdam. Starts at 19:30. Hosted by Maykin Media and ABC Treehouse.

If you plan on joining, put yourself on the visitor list at the  
python.org site:
http://wiki.python.org/moin/PUN/ABC201202
Route: http://www.treehouse.abc.nl/index.php?page=location

If you can make it people will pick up the thread face to face.

Best,
Kit
