Eastern Standard Time

Retired Java programmer.  Primarilly doing "back end" work, database design and CRUD components used by UI/UX people.


Towards the end of my career I didn't spend a lot of time "keeping up", particularly with systems I thought ridiculous.  This includes all "frameworks" although I have implemented using Spring etc. Don't care for any "Agile" processes as their sole reason for existence seems to be keeping Project Managers busy and keeping developers from working.
