I am a full time developer, which means I spend most of my days looking at a terminal and writing code. I am also no stranger to extreme measures to increase productivity and focus. Let’s just say fasting isn’t one of them.
A few weeks ago I did a presentation at the ThoughtWorks EU away day on the graph I’ve been developing using neo4j and I wanted to show who the most connected people in each of our European offices were.
I installed Jenkins last week for the very first time. A couple of days later I was able to publish my first plugin, called AnsiColor, which colorizes ANSI output. It’s the plugin you’ve all been waiting for.
On my office laptop, I have installed two versions of JDK. For the office work, I need JDK6 because the internal framework needs it. I’m using JDK7 for my personal projects and exploring the latest and greatest in Java. I have two versions of Eclipse too (one for office work and one is the latest Juno).
