I am software engineer living in Bangalore, India. I am co-founder of Muton LLP. My expertise lies in building web applications that are fast and intuitive. I am specialized in server side technologies, and I am good at front end developments.

Technologies that I use most frequently are Java, MySQL, Java based ORMs (iBatis, Apache cayenne), JavaScript, JQuery, HTML, CSS, Struts 1, Wicket, Cassandra, Amazon Web Services, Linux, Jetty, Tomcat, Apache, Glassfish, Maven, ANT, Subversion, Eclipse.

I jump on learning the technologies that lure me, and hence I have acquired workable knowledge in Python, Storm, Scala, Android, nodeJS, CSS3, Git.

I have been inactive since Jan 2012 due to loads of stuffs I am learning in Big-Data, R and all the new hype around data science. I hope to come back answering tough questions soon. You may contact me via Twitter or LinkedIn or mail me: nishant.neeraj at gmail.

comment Open source projects, how to choose?
I would recommend to contribute to a project that you are actually using in one or more of your projects. And, try improving the areas that you think the API/project lack. Be ready for rejections.

comment Reasons for a Java Developer to learn RoR
@clyfe well, Ruby did have issues wrt threading and performance slideshare.net/Belighted/ruby-vs-java I love it for being terse. And, I refer Ola Bini's (JRuby) presentation when I say Ruby is 2x slower. But perhaps, you are correct, that might not be a bottleneck considering network lags.

comment Reasons for a Java Developer to learn RoR
If you are a Java developer, Java codes makes sense. The only, positive thing that I see with Ruby is it's laconic scripting. Grails and Scala does the same. One positive point with Java I see it's at least 2x performance over Grails or Ruby. I like coding in Ruby but I am looking for a break through reason... and I guess there is not any.

comment Reasons for a Java Developer to learn RoR
I think this is very generic answer. It does not say WHY or WHY-NOT a Java developer should invest his time in Rails framework. Ideally, the answer should contrast Grails or Spring Roo or Java development in general with Rails or Ruby language in general.

+1 for asking the same question that I have. Having worked in various web technologies in Java, I started learning Rails just for the heck of it. I don't see what gain does it have over, lets say, Wicket in Scala.
