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?
@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.

@Falcon What do you mean tricked you in similar situations, like you thought you were right, but it turned out you were wrong?

As a Java "observer" from the outside, I'm very interested in this answer as well.
