My name is Aurelien and I’m a software engineer, specialized in Java and websites.

I currently work for Terracotta, the company behind Ehcache, BigMemory and Quartz.

I started coding at the age of 13, writing programs in BASIC, went on to be a demo-maker during my teen age, making Glenz vector 3d cubes spin on starfield backgrounds (if you know what I mean). I studied later in France and England, and started a career as a Java programmer, mainly programming websites, went to work in several countries… the Netherlands, Belgium, France, the Silicon Valley…

When I don’t code, I make music (link here the day I dare to share my music).

And I’m the author of TakeOn.Me, a really free dating website, that I wrote during my free time in order to learn different Java api’s.
Ludovic Orban from Bitronix helped me to architecture it, and to kick-start the development (he also answered numerous questions as he’s a Java guru and has a huge shovel to clean up the dirt 😉
The RSS feed is here.

2013 Update : I’m also the author of Dospop, a link sharing service to share links to musical blogs. The goal is to get the very best articles from all musical blogs for your favorite artists! I used a Tomcat/Jquery/JDBC/Servlet stack, might be moving to some lightweight MVC framework if I find a good one that can easily include authentication and i18n.
An example page is this one.
Thanks for reading this 🙂
