I use it every day professionally and build lots of applications in my spare time. I began programming in C and Perl in high school and have worked through more than ten languages to date but keep coming back to the JVM.
A bit of programmer fraternity and more exposure to new advances and trends. I hope to make a few new friends and have some deeper discussions about the nature of Java and programming than a professional developer's life provides.
I'm a professional Software Engineer and a Colorado native. I've been programming since 2000 and in Java since 2004. I have a Masters Degree in Applied Algorithms and Computer Graphics from the Colorado School of Mines.
A great group
