Learn by doing

I have enjoyed picking up new challenges that drove my growth. From automating phone quality tests to parsing tomcat logs, visually displaying error deltas by release.

About me

My over all philosophy

I’m a constant learner.  I love art, philosophy, meditation, mysticism and of course development.  Using my time wisely, I’ve learned new skills to improve code quality everywhere I’ve worked, but on a personal level, I’ve grown over the years as well.  I picked music orchestration – creating various classical albums.  I became a self-taught artist, creating art in various mediums (computer 2d/3d, wood burning, pen & ink and watercolor).  More than all of it, I believe in a continuous process of self improvement.  Studying the philosophical nature of meaning and concept of Self.  To me, the true Self is not a consumer of entertainment, but a producer, a creator.  It’s someone who gives back to others, and I strive to live by this motto every day.

Other blogs of mine cover my various interests, but here, I try and focus on development in languages and frameworks.
