The man behind Jollobajano. I am a computer scientist, psychologist. I have also studied mathematics. I wrote my first program in 1982.

5 REM Hello World
10 PRINT "Hello World! "
20 GOTO 10

Since then I have learned and used a lot of programming languages beside Basic. I have programmed in (among others)


  • Pascal
  • Borland Pascal
  • Modula2

  • C
  • Object C
  • Borland C
  • C++

  • Java

  • JavaScript

  • YAML

  • Tex
  • LaTex
  • Markdown

  • Common Lisp
  • Emacs Lisp

  • Forth
  • Fortran
  • Prolog
  • Simula

  • HyperCard

  • different flavours of assembly
  • machine code

  • Matlab/Octave
  • R

  • SQL

  • Rapid

  • Perl
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • Bash

  • Go

  • and all those config files and small script languages.

I used to be an expert C/C++/Borland C programmer and laced this with the occasional Pascal/Borland Pascal. In 1995 my very good friend Johan Eker returned from his post doc at Berkeley University with a paper from a certain James Gosling which he presented to me. I was initially skeptic to this “obvious C clone”. Over the time I’ve seen the light and by now I have programmed in Java for the last 20 years.

I love Open Source, Free Software the fruits of communal effort. A huge fan of Linux and Unixes. I enjoy Emacs over Eclipse, Maven over make and Ant, Git over both CVS and SVN and all that goes with this.

My main focus these days are Java EE, IT (with computing besides the CRUD) as well as AI, graphs and search methodologies.

Jollobajano is my tech, science, etc blog. I wish I was a better writer: I am thinking that I will be, given enough practice by blogging.
