"Go Faster" has been a permanent part of my work life. If there's a way to make a process go faster, I will find it.
Currently, I'm working on a domain specific programming language to facilitate testing of a file transfer agent. The language will run on the JVM to ensure that I can test on Linux, AIX, HP-UX and Windows with equal ease. (Lest one get the wrong idea, the language does not compile down to byte-code. I'm not that advanced yet.) This language addresses the problems of test verification and test execution on multiple platforms. My present testing method, bash scripts, is effective but only on Linux.
