I have a background in cell biology research. My previous focus was in studying cancer progression and metastasis. I am now interested in mechanisms of inflammation, from a vascular physiology perspective.

In my free time (not much) I'm an amateur programmer (java, c#, javascript) and cell phone modder (ex winmo, now android).

comment How do you know you're writing good code?
@Rich Bradshaw But, still, what is clever enough? What is simple enough? How do you define "optimal" algorithms? Do we really need the "optimal" algorithm or sometimes a "good" one will suffice? I am not disagreeing with you (they all seem very good points). These are true, honest questions from yet another self-learner without any other coders around.

As a self-learner as Jim (although with much less experience than him, probably), I have to say that these "smells" are a pretty good guideline and will make me probably rewrite a few lines here and there :)
