The team is a close-knit group of nine passionate individuals from Gdańsk University of Technology who are enthusiastic about high performance computing, multimedia processing, natural language processing and OpenSource. In our team consists of members holding PhD diploma, PhD and MSc. students. We specialize in C++ (e.g. RDMA, MPI, Boost and GStreamer) and Java technologies such as Spring, Hibernate and ActiveMQ. Our developers have rich experience in scientific and business projects, such as MAYDAY EURO 2012, Platon, PLGrid, Beesy Cluster, Tempus, Copernicus or Endoscopy Recommender System (ERS). Part of our team have certifications from IBM, Oracle/Sun, Novell and LPI (e.g. OCPJP and LPIC). We focus not only on development, but we also do research that is connected with HPC. We create models based on diagnostic data, we design and execute validation tests to prove them, and we use them to solve real-life problems.
