comment What were the “core” API packages of Java 1.0?
Don't remember about v1 final, but alpha3 (as in v1alpha3) had a lot more packages before v1beta2 (can't remember beta1) came out. Specifically, they had FTP packages in public API because alpha3 was still Solaris only and used Solaris libraries for that. I remember throwing a lot of paper manuals that were so - hopelessly - wrong suddenly. Oh, and I was doing Java on a Mac!!!

comment How can I transition to a job using the Microsoft stack?
@Keyo, Atlassian advertised through SO Careers and they are good place to work (different skills though). Never say never. SO Careers is a new project as well.

comment Perception of a developer that uses a pre-packaged web implementation for their personal site?
Couldn't you have contributed to somebody else's open source project instead? This way your learning would have been useful for others too. Or do something nobody else tried before. Not trying to be snarky here, but I am really puzzled by why you thought reinventing the wheel was the best thing here.
