Where did you hear about this group?

Through Arron Rea at, a consultant who I've got to know and have been extremely impressed with.

How long have you been developing with Java?

Since 1998. I have a good appreciation of classical Object Oriented languages and inheritance and find Java very interesting, not least in light of Android's adoption of Java. I use Eclipse to develop Android games from time to time, in Java.

What are your favourite technologies at the moment?

Mostly JavaScript frameworks such as Backbone and Angular, also Node. I also enjoy using HTML5 and CSS3.

Would you be interested in hearing about any new Java permanent or contract positions at present? (if yes please add which would be of more interest)

At the moment I'm more interested in JavaScript positions, both contract and permanent.
