Java Community Role:
Senior Business Analyst [aka Java Backseat Driver]
My Master Kung-Fu Skills:
Hitting the Achilles heel: discovery of bugs and weak spots in the code.
Finding the missing link: getting to work whatever doesn’t.
I'd be excited to get my hands dirty on:
DISC (AJAX Framework) in WLP10.2, Flex integration in WLP10.2, WSRP that actually works out-of-the-box...
Q: Hi Stefan, how would your message look like if you would have to tell it via Twitter what you are currently doing?
A: Getting our project live with whatever it takes, even coding… and of course telephone conferences with India, lots of those.
Q: What was the greates piece of code you have ever written so far?
A: A Firefox extension (that was in the days they were still called like that) to link and annotate websites and store this information through SOAP on a multimedia linking server.
A: "Don’t explain it away" (bugs stay bugs...)
Q: What is the best quote you have heard from our managers?
A: "If you use JIRA you don’t need a code versioning system anymore, right?"
Q: What is the most cutting-edge technology or framework you actually used on projects?
A: WSRP, AJAX and SOAP mixed on WLS10 and WLP10. Really a lot of cutting and bleeding involved...
Q: What is your favorite podcast?
A: I was forced to write Java Posse here…, no seriously they are quite good, especially if they talk about non-Java stuff ;-)
Q: Which Java book can you recommend and for what reason?
A: Why read books if you can ask your colleagues whatever you need to know? (How cheesy is that answer! …, actually I can’t remember having read a Java book lately)
