I love software development, and technology of all kinds. I have a boy and a girl and a beautiful wife, all of whom I adore. I practice Southern Chinese Kung Fu, and hope that my kids will too. I write code and play boardgames in my spare time.

I currently work as a JEE engineer in Edina, MN.

comment Overcome clumsiness in writing code
@nightcracker: I know what you mean. At times I've had to 'mark my backtrail' so to speak, so that I didn't forget all the details that occurred to me while brainstorming corner cases. Using a text editor with liberal use of indenting works well enough for this.

comment Overcome clumsiness in writing code
Writing tests first forces you to think about the edge cases before you start implementing any logic, which will often result in code that is much less prone to bugs through 'clumsiness'.

comment Should I use the language I'm most comfortable in, or the company “standard”
This is a good answer, but I would add that the OP should speak to his/her manager about the tradeoffs to see how strict they consider the standard, and whether they'd approve his/her use of another stack for this project.

comment Programmer Ethics: Can I fork a project from one code host to another?
@Rangoric: It looks like you're assuming the original project is in a mercurial repo, but Bitbucket supports both mercurial and git.
