Dr Alexander Bunkenburg
Scala Java web developer
Technically: Scala, Java, web.
Role: mainly development.
Modern informal company style.
Prefer companies that make their own engine, over consulting companies.
I value the ethical aspect: using technology to make lives better.
Interesting: cryptocurrency, energy, or science.
- 1988-1999 Education and research at University of Glasgow based on lazy Functional Programming (Haskell)
- 1999-2018 Professional development in Object-Oriented Java.
- 2018 Passed the five Scala courses offered by EPFL on coursera.
- 2019 Complex Calculator: As practice, I re-write a Java app in Scala.
Interactive graphical visualisation of complex number operations in 2D and 3D.
In Scala: complex numbers, vectors and matrices, Swing GUI.
- I'm looking forward to working with Scala.
Finally, functional-programming techniques, even with laziness, have arrived in commercial software development.
