About Me

Szymon is the author of Practical Bot Development: Designing and Building Bots with Node.js and Microsoft Bot Framework on Apress. Szymon has 15 years of hands on experience in the software development industry. He found a passion working on front end applications on Wall Street. The interest in attention to user interface details would take him on a tour of the different user interface technologies on the Windows, Web and iOS/Android platforms.

He has managed teams of engineers on a variety of projects and since 2016, he has dedicated his time to building chat bots for clients across text and voice channels. He has built a practice around the technologies at Blue Metal, An Insight Company, and is involved in a handful of chat bot projects at any time. As Chief Architect of Emerging Technologies, he keeps cognitively flexible by reading and watching presentations about new technologies, educating clients, leading discovery s essions, scoping and guiding engagements, mentoring engineers and helping clients apply technologies such as Chat Bots, Blockchain and Augmented Reality to business problems.

In his spare time, he enjoys taking walks, reading fiction, going to the beach, playing guitar, and spending time with his wife Kim, his son Teddy, and his Golden Retriever, Chelsea.
