I'm a Java developer, currently working for Wotif.com. I've been called a SoftwareEngineer
, and a few other names, but I tend to ignore the titles and just do what I do. Possibly the best way to describe me would be as a SoftwareCraftsman
, journeyman-level striving for master, ala PeteMcBreen
My current interests include J2EE development, Patterns, and ExtremeProgramming
, but I'm willing to dabble in just about anything.
I can be reached by email at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
. My personal home page these days is my blog, which is at http://twasink.net/blog
Having just stumbled across this page, I can confirm that I am a GentlePersonAfflictedWithPeculiarNotions
, for those of who you care about those things. Personally, I don't, but I am amused at how many there are on Wiki given that we're meant to be such a small percentage of the population.
For further information, I live and work in Brisbane, Australia. I've worked for a number of companies within Brisbane, now, and even did a stint as a private contractor. These days, as I said, I work at Wotif.com.
I'm also the proud owner of a PersonalWiki
, and I find it very useful.
For the observant, you'll note a Dilbert doll just behind me in the photo. He observes my work and protects me from harm, though not half as well as a Dogbert (Patron Saint of Technology!) doll would do. In many ways, I view Dilbert (the character, not the strip) as my TotemAnimal
. I wish I could view Dogbert that way, but I'm just not up to that standard yet. In equally many ways, I view Dilbert (the strip, not the character) as a MetaphorsWeLiveBy
Pages I've started (that I care to claim):
