About Me

Welcome to my web page. I am a big believer in the "do the simplest thing that can possibly work" principle, and have applied it to this web site!

I live and work in Sydney, Australia. By profession I work in IT focusing on architecture, web technologies, WebSphere, Spring, Hibernate, distributed programming and other such buzz words.

Checkstyle Tool

I have written a tool called Checkstyle. It is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that adheres to a coding standard. Its purpose is to automate the process of checking Java code, and to spare humans of this boring (but important) task. You can get it from the Checkstyle page.

My Blog

I have a blog that I update sporadically.
