I work as a software engineer full time. I've been working in Java codebases for a number of years now and I really like the flexibility and usefulness of Java. I'm happy to help new coders discover the awesomeness of Java. Yes, it does exist :).
I am a Java nut. While some may hate it for its (seemingly) unnecessary verbosity at times, that is one of the main reasons I love it. I've written Java as a hobby and professionally for over five years.
I'm very enthuastic about clean code and TDD. I've developed a few small android apps and otherwise microservices in java 8. I'm addicted to (un)conferences, meetups, watching conference talks online, or simply reading the classic books about software development. Never stop learning!
I'm a software engineer working professionally in Java, I love to learn new languages and to improve my coding style. My side projects are usually focused around learning some new language or technology.
I have been writing Java code professionally for the past 3 years and I have had a wonderful experience with it. The functional style of Java 8 took some getting used to, but it really improved my team's codebase and productivity.
My first programming language was Java. At the beginning it was quite challenging to write some code that does actually make sense. After a few days however, it became easier and fun to mess around with.
I have 7+ years experience as software developer, mainly using Java, recently also Kotlin ♥. I'm a fast learner and eager to explore new technologies. I'm also a believer in agile software development, team work and Clean Code.
