Adam Heath


Adam Moved to Texas, USA from Michigan in 1998 at the age of 24. Started working for Brainfood in September, 1998, and has worked there since. Adam started programming as a teenager. Adam got involved with Debian GNU/Linux in December 1997. Still a member. Fixed several critical bugs in dpkg, ran it under profiling, and sped parts of it up orders of magnitude. Made debbugs use a hash directory layout. Have committed code into kaffe. Added support to OfBiz for automatically clearing out caches of view entities when the real entities are updated. Fell in love with Java Concurrency Programming in Practice; modified Webslinger to not be non-blocking in most areas. Added generics markup to base-line OfBiz.
