Elias Van Ootegem

I work -or have worked- with:

  • Go/Golang (weapon of choice ATM)
  • NoSQL: Couchbase, Cassandra
  • SQL: MySQL, PostgreSQL
  • PHP
  • C (ANSI C99)
  • Perl & Bash
  • current OS's: Linux (Slackware, Fedora)

I don't like:

  • Java
  • Solutions that are needlessly complex
  • COBOL
  • Answers with Regular expressions to solve a problem that didn't require Regex's
  • Java

Stuff I find to be true:

  • Java is the new COBOL
  • If your solution relies on more than 3 regular expressions at any given time, you're part of the problem.
