I am 36 old software enginner. I come from Poland and I live in Cambridge, UK. Apart from my professional job I used to participate to a few open source projects: [http://www.geotools.org GeoTools], [http://generguide.sourceforge.net/ GenerGuide], [http://wttools.sourceforge.net WTTools] and the last one, Jabber/XMPP related: [http://www.tigase.org Tigase].
