Dev. Using Java, Spring, Cassandra, Tomcat, Maven and unit tests. Patterns, refactoring, good architecture/design and the agile/pragmatic guff are stuff I see as useful. I'm also a fan of learning how to do stuff - or knowing stuff - well. Haven't been working long - a few years.
Knowledge other than tech. I have a B. Business and B. IT (Info systems) & spent some years in an Australian bankassurance group where I started as part of a graduate program. I also interned for a year with SAP Research doing cross-disciplinary research into business controls & their relation to white-collar crime in the context of Semantic Web technology and IT Security.
Sportsfan. Watch most anything. NRL (rugby league), association football, Australian Rules football. Do sport when can find time
Career development. Currently learning Cassandra to work on telematic car insurance. Keen to do some Open-source. NoSql. Linux. I attend Meetups by the London Java Community (LJC) and other tech, agile and NoSQL ones.
