Torsten Uhlmann

Torsten Uhlmann is a German-based freelance Software Craftsman, a husband, and a dad, no dog. He has worked on numerous medium to large software projects over the course of nearly two decades. He has gained insight into many different technologies, from Cobol to Ruby, from Oracle to MongoDB, from programming CICS terminals to developing scalable web applications using a wide range of different technologies. A few years back he fell in love with Scala as a very expressive language that challenged many of the things he thought he knew about software design. He joined the growing number of Lift committers contributing a port of a showcase application to Java in an effort to open up the framework for multiple programming languages. To this day he greatly enjoys writing performant and scalable Lift applications for his clients, one of them being the secure private network sgrouples.com.
