Speaking of the few Nigerians I worked with, they were some of the best developers I know.
Ade(short form of a very long name) Adeiji was one of my first Java Gurus.
Great attitude. Way to go Nigeria !

She's definitely from Nigeria, and I would fairly confidently guess that she's Yoruba. I used to live in Ogbomoso, Lagos, and Jos, so if you do get a job, maybe you'd like to hook me up too! I'm sitting the SCJP exam on Mon afternoon...

Great page. Still trying to get the Up/Down arrows to work in the Think Ahead Game.Will try BallWorld and I like your description of use of design patterns as "know their behaviour and act appropriately without conditional statements".

They exist. I found out from a recent potential employer that the software they develop for their energy client(s) only uses J2SE.
And HS Thomas, were you knocking my page? That was definitely a very temporary one put up very haphazardly, and I've been SOOOO lazy that I haven't taken it down. I'm not too concerned about it b/c most of the HR people I've dealt with don't seem aware of the notion of Googling applicants.

Great page.

That doesn't sound like "knocking your page".
I liked it.

been working 3 years in java and very seldomly do I stray from J2SE. Never wrote a bean, never wrote a servlet, never wrote a line of XML or JSP tags. Very rarely do I dabble in the Mail api, or webservices. Most of my work is working with JDBC, custom jars ( ie Crystal Reports jars, IBM jars etc ), and security APIs.
Not once did the job description say "J2SE" in the job description.

Ok, thanks HS Thomas.
And Billy Tsai, I didn't want to go posting names of companies on here. It's a new energy solutions company in Houston--they may have only one or two clients b/c they started about a year or two ago. However, their work sounds similar to a lot of the other "energy solutions" companies I've interviewed with that write apps in Java, so it's nothing unusual. Granted, there are a lot of positions out there that say "J2EE" or "servlets, JSP" but there are also a lot that don't, and from what I can see, plenty of people need both. It's not like J2EE means you throw out J2SE anyway.
