Before graduating from college, Josh Cummings picked up a job coding JavaSwing applications. Thereafter, he moved on to Java Servlets. Spring, Maven, Hibernate, and several other Java enterprise technologies followed. From Design Patterns or Technical Debt, learning to code elegantly was invigorating. He created frameworks and libraries. He wrote plugins for CXF, Sonar, Oracle WAM, and Maven. He became a trusted Java engineer whose understanding ranged from why Java lambdas were so controversial to how to create a custom Spring namespace handler. Against all odds, he even came away understanding SAML. It was only a matter of time before Josh wanted to share his love with others. Thus, in 2013, Josh left full-time software engineering to begin teaching youth like his younger self about the wonders of computing. Life has never been better.
