I'm currently a Java developer and product manager in the financial industry. I am currently working on lots of different projects, but I have focused on high-performance server work and Swing client work in the past. I've developed in multiple languages on multiple platforms, working seriously with PHP, ASP, Unix C/C++, MS SQL Server, and MySQL.

I take a very direct approach to programming. I don't bow to convention simply because it is. Remember that DOS was a standard at one point. Remember that Windows still is a standard. Does it work, yes, I suppose, most of the time it does. I would build it much differently.

I wouldn't use the synonym of "coward".
