I like to hack things together in LISP (clojure at the moment) and java in my spare time. I'm interested in intelligent CMS solutions, AI, data mining and much more. I usually tend to be attracted to topics/technologies which present me with a challenge. If you have ideas which do fit my interests then feel free to contact me on arold (dot) adam (@) gmail (dot) com.

While not at the computer I like to play drums, pick locks and run around in airsoft fields with guns blazing.

I also created the tag on meta.

I've checked out Clojure lately and I think that it is the one that suits my needs the most! Thanks for the advice!

comment Do I have to write a lot of boilerplate code if I keep working using Java?
@SK So if I wish to maximize the creative work and kill the drudgery then companies using only java may not be the right choice for me?

Maybe it did not turn out when they interviewed that person.

I've been working with clojure for a few months now (on my own) and it looks really nice.

Yes my main problem is with code generation.

Maybe my phrasing wasn't quite appropriate. For example I used reflection somewhere because this way I had to write only 50 lines of code instead of 300 lines in 3 classes. I wrote comments so everyone can wrap their head around it but I have been told that "reflection is evil".

comment Does dress code affect your programmers performance
I don't think that programmers in general care about each other's dress.

I won't start a PHP vs Whatever flame war. Everyone has his / her own subjective thought on that and besides I **don't like ** PHP so it is not an option anyway.

Ok what I will do: I will learn LISP and Python too, but I will use Python, because the reasons you and others mentioned above. Thanks for the clarification.
