Craftsman, adventurer, wanderlust.

Journeyman software engineer by trade, but in general I love building all kinds of things. I subscribe to the "guild" ideal of software development. I believe our products can be meticulously engineered while remaining breathtakingly beautiful, in the same way an artisan can transform a block of marble into an ornately carved column that inspires the observer as much as it supports the structure. The notion of a software developer as a master craftsman truly resonates with me.

\\//_ Live long and prosper.

@Hashim I can't seem to find it right now. It is possible it was an episode of Netlix's "Dogs".

comment How to add local .jar file dependency to build.gradle file?
@KareemJeiroudi I may be misunderstanding your question, but if you are talking about making a module a dependency of the project, you would do something like this: compile(project(":MyProject")), where "MyProject" is defined in your settings.gradle file with something like include("MyProject").
