ABOUT ME


Who am I? I am a superhero panda wearing a bandana, call me "Pandana". Pandas, being one of my favorite animals, never cease to amaze me. They serve as a poignant reminder of the importance of nature and its preservation. As much as I am a fervent admirer of innovation and technology, I strive diligently to minimize the carbon footprint associated with my personal projects to the greatest extent possible.

This website showcases my side projects & entrepreneurial experiences only.
For my full resume, please visit my LinkedIn profile below.

Open source project creator

In 2007, I created the "KontrolPack" open source project with over 400 000 downloads and was integrated in Ubuntu, Gentoo and Arch Linux. I managed contributors from all over the world on a weekly basis. Read the AddictiveTips or Ghacks articles to learn more.

In 2009, I created a second open source project "FeelHome". I used marketing techniques to generate buzz on Tech media outlets like LifeHacker or MacGeneration resulting in thousands of downloads per week.



Entrepreneur

In 2013, I co-founded Jooxter, a company that specializes in optimizing workspace occupancy. We built a Saas platform (mobile & web) analyzing occupancy rates of large buildings using an innovative technology based on IoT, Big Data and Machine Learning (AI). After two years of bootstrapping, we raised 1 Million Euros to expand our sales effort in Europe (Luxembourg, Belgium, UK, Italy, etc).

My side projects timeline



Q1
2007
KontrolPack LAUNCH

I began developing KontrolPack in my spare time as a student. The project grew rapidly, and I found myself managing contributors from Poland, Spain, and the US. It became a major success and was integrated into several popular Linux distributions.


FeelHome LAUNCH

I enjoyed and learned so much from building KontrolPack that I wanted to repeat the experience by launching a new product. FeelHome allowed me to strengthen my skills in product development and team management. I was able to launch this second project twice as fast as the first one. Experience is key.

Q2
2009

S2
2013
Jooxter LAUNCH

After successfully launching two side projects, it was time to start my own venture (a dream of mine). The challenge was to find the right product-market fit and a business model in a niche project.


Pixelixe LAUNCH

In 2018, I launched Pixelixe, a creative automation platform, as a bootstrapped side project. I primarily dedicated my evenings, weekends, and holidays to working on this venture.
