A developer for a software company in Waterloo, ON. My current project is building development tools (notably an IDE built on Eclipse) for a proprietary language you've never heard of. It makes things interesting.

I've done quite a bit of Java and C# development and a smattering of C/C++.

At home I get to mess with stuff like Python, Ubuntu and Android development. I'm also part of the local Agile/Lean software community, LoCo contact for Ubuntu Canada and I'm involved in running Kwartzlab, the local hackerspace.

comment Deja-dup repeatedly asks encryption password
I'm seeing this as well. It looks like it gets to a specific file, prompts for the password and then starts over from the beginning. Excluding that specific file (or its folder) just means it finds a different file to loop back on.
