Meet Dominik, our Open Source Tech Lead

Before Dominik took a leadership role he used to be a Data Scientist at Appsilon. He has five years of experience in Python and R programming, mostly from data science and machine learning related projects.

He is personallyinterested in human cognition, low quality football, capoeira and all kind of board sports. During his Masters studies Dominik participated in two editions of Google Summer of Code program.

If your curious, his commits might be found in brain2, scikit-learn or pylems python modules. If that weren’t enough, he is a core contributor to various R packages: mljar, shiny.collections, shiny.i18n.

He recently decided to pursue his PhD in computational neuroscience at Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Center. Even while studying, he finds time to share his knowledge at meet-ups in Warsaw and Cardiff.

During his time at University, Dominik would still regularly check out our GitHub and update our Open Source. In that time Dominik and Appsilon both decided to work together again.

Dominik is now Appsilon’s Open Source Tech Lead .

Open Source at Appsilon

In our Open Source department we are working hard now on the release of our new package semantic.dashboard. Semantic.dashboard is currently under development. We strongly believe that neat data and visualisations are key ingredients of every data science project. With that in mind, we are building a bright new dashboard theme on top of our successful shiny.semantic package.

Concurrently we refreshed the shiny.router package. We removed all unnecessary dependencies. This made is more light and coherent with recent Shiny developments. It will be easier to use it as well thanks to updated examples and documentation.

We never forget about other our packages from the Shiny family. Check out our great tools which help you with internationalisation, semantic UI elements injection, or making your app more collaborative. Simply visit our GitHub profile:

Person in charge for our Open Source is Dominik who you had a chance to get to know thanks to this blogpost.

Please reach out to him for any feature requests or to find out where you could contribute!
