I really ought to introduce myself! I'm a zend certified java developer, and I currently work for Booking.com as a backend developer in the UK.
I recently migrated from mastodon.online. I'm not very skilled at this whole "social media" malarkey, but hope that i'm able to make a positive contribution to this community.
@pharalia Welcome Michael, I've been on Twitter forever but only dove into using it and now these fediverse alternatives over the past couple months.
A main area of interest for me is how social networking can be beneficial and optimized for use in a healthy way to serve individuals and communities.
@pharalia Welcome to the party!
You mention being a Java guy at Booking.com. I thought booking was a largely Perl shop. Am I misinformed?
@profoundlynerdy it's a good mix to be honest, as far as I understand. I don't work for accommodations, I believe they use Perl quite a lot. I work for trips / transport side of the business who are more Java oriented.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
