Where did you hear about this group?

i deciphered references to it in the prophecies of Nostradamus

How long have you been developing with Java?

Sixteen years.

What are your favourite technologies at the moment?

EE 6

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)

yes; contract positions would be of more interest


I started playing with Java in 1996, with 1.0.2. I started working with it in 2008. I like elegance, i dislike overcomplication, and i cannot stand people who try to pass the latter off as the former.

What Tom A. is saying about this Meetup Group

The LJC is what would happen if the Avengers made babies with the staff of the Manhattan Project. And then brought them up in London. As programmers.
