Main interests
Design and programming as well as process development for better business value, code health and quality.

Motto: Today I want to be better than yesterday but worse than tomorrow.
I am disciplined and systematic and have good problem solving abilites having always the business value as one of the top decision factors. I am eager to learn new skills and have good pedagogical skills. I have a deep understanding of the meaning and benefits of systematic work (i.e. coordination, management, issue tracking, releasing policy, source code management, binary artifact management, etc.). I also understand, sometimes complex, dependencies between quality and profit.

I had many different titles but the most important task was to maintain and especially to develop a good, confidential and stable relationship with the one of the leading life insurance companies.
Skills I had learned in the past played, of course, the great role but probably the biggest advantages were good social skills.
1997 - 2001 Software engineer
I started my working career in Profit Software by maintaining a major Finnish insurance company's proposal calculation software. After that I began to design and implement a proposal and sale application for one of the leading life insurance companies. This software is still in production in time of writing (2010-08-31).
A successful working required, in addition to project management and software engineering knowledge, some knowledge of risk and life insurance business as well as ability to learn and adapt new things quickly.

I made a research of user interface techniques by using object oriented technologies and methods. In addition to that I designed and implemented processes on electricity measuring systems. I invented the method to examine the status and progression of the application (process) "on the fly".
To achieve the goals of the given tasks the knowledge of electricity measurement methods, user interface design methodologies and communication protocols was required. Also, it was necessary to have a deep knowledge and understanding of interprocess communication and concurrency programming.
