Biography: Per Nymann Joergensen

I remember when I bought my first computer, it was back in the early 80, but from that point on, my passion for computers and making them 'do things' was awaken.
Today many year later :-), now 36 years old, having two kids, and living in a small town 40 km outside of Copenhagen my passion has been my profession.
I have been working with Java for the last 10 years, and have an education as Cand.scient.dat from University of Copenhagen, the last year and half, I have been working for Trifork.
As a person, constant learning is important, I love reading and not only about computers science, but also the 'big' picture is a passion. In my spare time i'm playing soccer and running.
Software Passion: Make software which is easy to understand, for myself and other.
