Portfolio 07/2022 – Tomasz Jura

I am a programmer born in Poland. I became interested in programming for the first time in 2006. In 2012 I graduated from high school (with technical school) and obtained the title of IT SPECIALIST. A month later I started my first full-time job where I wrote automatic tests in Java and PHP. I was always full of inspiration, I gained all the necessary knowledge on my own through various courses, stackoverflow and other forums. I immediately used the acquired knowledge in practice creating my own application, the zgloszenia24.pl application. I have been developing the application to this day treating it as a place for personal development. I am a cheerful person, I like to work and integrate with the team. I can brainstorm and lead in achieving a common goal. After 10 years of experience and work in the programming industry, I continue to treat programming as my passion. When I working on products, it is very important to create high-quality software. I always put quality first  but in some situations I can find a balance between quality and business. Recently I also created my first open-software plugin for Yii2 that you find on my GitHub
