Roseanne is a Sun Certified Java Programmer, Sun Certified Java Web Component Developer and IBM Certified Developer on XML Technologies. She also teaches physics in a community college.
She is a contract senior software developer in many different industries, from telecoms to revenue management, from airplane dogfight cellphone games to real Navy airplane avionics, programming in different languages too (Java, C/C++, Ruby, XSLT, VB, etc).
Roseanne used to be a physicist and a long time teacher, and she still is. She once worked in a lab with a sign "Danger (a skull icon): power CO2 laser, strong magnetic field, and extremely poor physics graduate students."
Roseanne finally figured out a way to continue her beloved teaching career without the worry of being fired, or waiting for the next pay check. She served as a moderator at the famous Marcus Green website since 1999. With some other people, she started the "Dallas SCJD Study Group" in 2001, which is no longer active. Roseanne is also a jGuru forum/FAQ manager since 2002. Roseanne is a bartender in JavaRanch since 2005. Java started a second life for her.
