In summary I am a Christian, husband, father of two adopted children (Guatemala and Korea), and a software developer immersed in Web technologies for almost 15 years. I have experience leading projects on various technology fronts, including Java, .NET (C#) and PHP, and I've used MySQL, SQL, PL/SQL and Oracle for relational database development. I'm currently immersed in Java EE and the Spring Framework, and I enjoy working most with the Java technology stack.

comment What would motivate you to do free programming work for work after work?
@Iterator How many owners will let employees think like an owner without trying to "out owner" them? I would love it if more owners just said, "Run with it!" Unfortunately, the micro manager mentality kicks in and they want to take full ownership.

@Thorbjorn Actually, I never thought about that, but that is a great question. I'm not sure I would know the criteria to reward them outside of work-related programming. For example, should they be rewarded for contributing to an open source project?

@Thorbjorn and for user272735, just to make things crystal clear here, I am NOT trying to figure out how to get coworkers to do free work. As a matter of fact, I WANT them to be rewarded. The crux of the question is do programs or initiatives exist so that they can be rewarded.

@Thorbjorn In case you're wondering, I'm not a manager trying to squeeze free work out of employees. Instead, I'm a lead trying to determine what my options are with regard to making recommendations to management.
