I am 29 from South Africa and have been living in Norway a few years.

I am a newly educated developer with a huge (skills array that I am making public here lol).
I spent a good couple of years doing a lot of Java certification and just as I was scouting for work in 2010, I fell seriously ill.
I was diagnosed with an orange-sized brain tumor and had 5 surgeries and was in a coma for a week.

Good news is I am back and strong and looking for work. This is bit hard though given a huge gap in my CV due to illness and lack of experience.
I have not forgotten my skills, but have built on them while undergoing chemo. Over the last year, I have built 3 Facelets sites which include my own site (thejarbar).

I used Maven and Gimp for these projects and wrote a lot of bash scripts that are available at my site if you need to grap a couple of scripts. (videos inclused at YouTube).

I need a hand so if any of you in Norway here of any openings let me know Oh and I can work for free for a year under the Norwegian health insurance scheme (AAP).
So potential bosses can feel a little safer should they wish to give me a run.

Coding for Cancer!

SCJP 6.0, SCJD (400/400), SCBCD for JEE 5, SCWCD 1.4 I do videos for development at
I am probably the only developer ever to have had an orange sized brain tumor in my brain while learning development!!
