I've long thought I should write more and authoring a blog has always been on my list of things to work on. I've tried several times, these sad, aborted attempts live on like sad, lonely zombies haunting the Google cache. People searching for something obscure like "twitter client emacs" may have stumbled upon on old page and quickly grown disappointed with the old and non-functional code referenced therein.

Java coding by day… Hacking away with Clojure by night

Still, it's a dream that just won't die. I write sporadically and, often, unsuccessfully.

During the day I spend most of my time in front of IntelliJ’s IDEA toiling away on Java code. While I do get to put some software together from scratch I spend the majority of my time working on mid-size to large custom web applications. By night, after my daughter goes to bed and the Tivo's meager supply of programming is exhausted I work on my own pet project, one that simultaneously excites me with it's challenge and embarrasses me with it's grandiosity whenever I'm cornered and compelled to confess to another human being: an Emacs-like editor implemented in Clojure.

About My Day Job

I'm a software developer and I do full-stack development for Windsor Solutions, a consulting company that specializes in providing solutions geared towards environment and natural resources management. Personally, I mostly work with Java, JPA and Spring; I’m also working on learning more about GIS.

Technical Details

For those that find such things interesting, the vast majority of this blog's content is written in Emacs with the help of Org Mode. Once the copy is completed it's exported to HTML and the website itself is constructed by Jekyll and then uploaded to my web-space with the help of Git.
