About this blog

About me

My name is Damian Pietras. I'm a system programmer at a polish portal INTERIA.pl. In past I worked for Open-E creating SAN (mainly iSCSI) and NAS software. I was always fascinated with Open Source and Linux particularly. I'm developing server software, currently INTERIA.pl mail system which is one of the largest mail providers in Poland (millions mailboxes handled by hundreds servers). My primary programming languages are C and C++.

About this blog

Sometimes at work or when programming for fun I encourage a problem that is not so common that you easily find a solution on the Internet and have to resolve it myself or have an idea that may be interested for programmers. The solution is often worth writing down with a description to be used in the future. I've created this blog as a something between a programmer's handbook and a diary to note the ideas, patterns or valuable information that are hard to find in other places. I hope this site will be interesting to programmers, especially for those who develop software on Linux. I sometimes about things only partially or completely not related to programming, even oldest programmers sometimes do other things than writing code.
