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 better way to define an exception thrown by a method in Java?
you are mis-using exceptions, what you are describing is not exceptional, it is expected behavior apparently from your description. this can be checked before had easily and handled without having to incur the overhead of raising an exception.

Erlang is very expressive and not complex syntactically. I think all functional languages end up being more expressive with less reserved keywords.

I think the key word in your answer is complex, a sufficiently designed language should be simple, not complex.
