John Baluka

ICompare Solutions, LLC, Independent Software Developer

John has been developing software with the Microsoft stack for 20+ years. For most of the last 10 years, John has been a sub-contractor, business owner, and a Dad. John enjoys researching and applying new technologies to real world examples.

For the last couple of years, John has found nopCommerce to be an excellent example of an enterprise-level solution for a .NET developer and continues to discover what is possible with open source. For John, nopCommerce has become a playground to implement and compare other various technologies like Angular and React on the front-end , NHibernate and Dapper for data access, or Oracle on the back-end. John is currently working on a UI Test Automation solution with TestStack for nopCommerce that will be released as open source.
