Director of Technology

A software developer since the mid-80's I ran a successful consulting business for 15 years. I have worked for everything startups and international companies that did billions of dollars a quarter in profit.

As a technology consultant I made a career out of finding the next job, learning more about my clients business than they knew and giving them direction to future successes. I have comprehensive experience with both software and hardware development companies.

I have extensive experience as a hiring manager as well, earned from years of experience building, teaching and managing creative Agile Technical teams.

comment Why were default and static methods added to interfaces in Java 8 when we already had abstract classes?
static methods do not belong to interfaces. They belong to utility classes. No they belong in the @Deprecated category! static methods are one of the most abused constructs in Java, because of ignorance and laziness. Lots of static methods usually means incompetent programmer, increase coupling by several orders of magnitude and are a nightmare to unit test and refactor when you do realize why they are a bad idea!
