Software Engineering Consultant

Hi, I'm Miroslaw Opoka, a software consultant with over 20 years of experience providing software solutions focusing on embedded systems. I have extensive experience using modern C++, C, Python, and Linux to create efficient and reliable software solutions for applications like IoT devices or industrial control systems. And very modest experience in web development, as you can see.

What I do

My Approach and What It Means to You

In essence, my methodology boils down to two concepts: communication and pragmatism.

Communication is the key to achieving project success. I'm committed to an open dialogue, ensuring our objectives and strategies are aligned. Clear communication saves costs and reduces the risk of creating something that deviates from your needs.

Pragmatism in software development involves balancing simplicity and over-engineering. Simple solutions may initially reduce development time but may end up in software that is a mystery and a challenge to maintain due to missing necessary abstractions. On the other hand, too many abstractions can lead to bloated code, increasing the time and costs of future developments. Over the last two decades, I've seen those extremes and pretty much everything in between and developed an intuitive sense of what it means to be pragmatic in this field.
