I work as a consultant, and my current primary interests are Android and J2E application programming. Over the years I have been working quite a lot with software processes and have been glad to discover, that there is a lot in common between the process of writing excellent software and the process of brewing excellent beer - both goals I try to achieve.
Software Passion: Writing software with the right viscosity
