Jacek Ambroziak

During the 90's Jacek was a Research Scientist with a Conceptual Indexing project at Sun Microsystems Labs. Then as a member of Sun's XML Tech Center he wrote an XML full-text search engine (used in JavaHelp and OpenOffice) and an XSLT to JVM optimizing compiler (now Apache Xalan Compiled). More recently he innovates in the area of eBook search, preprocessing, and reading that attempts to better utilize the electronic medium and combine commercial, carefully crafted content with relevant freely available complementary material. Jacek is a Scala enthusiast, having previously programmed in LISP and Java, among other languages.
