♦ ♠ ♣ ♥ Current
⚁ NOW Kdb+ (K/Q) engineering. Functional languages.
Performance improvements in Service Oriented Architecture. Custom mallocs including: google tcmalloc, lockless and facebook jemalloc.
Metamorphic code.
Interested in black holes and gravitational lensing effect. R&D over data transformation in Information Processes.
OTHER High Frequency Trading Internals, Black Box Trading. Data Mining and Data Analysis from ESA Earth Observation Missions. Rockets & Space.
Software
CODE F# ray tracer. Some fun software Hammond Island (ActiveX .ocx or simple VB6.0 installation as software is quite old..). Package include also project documentation. Generic ecosystem with evolution on Jurassic Park Island ;-)
ML Mind Vision emotions auto annotation. Some results (pl) from various NN.
VIRI Some Viri doc (pl) and doc dump to presentation (pl).
OLD STUFF More random not tested and mostly old and ugly stuff you can find HERE.
Astronomy & Physics
GRAVITATIONAL LENSING Basic 3D gravitational lensing simulator enginee. You can find it HERE. Implemented in C++/OpenGL. Its quite limited, and enginee is based on photon tracking simulation.
OBSERVATIONS Phenomena in atmosphere. Short videos: brocken, green flash, glory. Sky objects and HERE some observational notes (in polish). Moreover constellation names in latin, program for practicing. FITS data: HERE you can find some of my samples from observational sessions in Białków Observatory including M101, M109, M44, M51, M53, M63, M82, M97.
