Juha Lindfors got involved with the JBoss J2EE application server in early 2000. While digging into the source, he got a crash course in the JMX API, which was already part of the server core. Today, apart from trying to learn to write, he spends a lot of his time writing free software and training people in JMX and J2EE. The rest of his time is spent trying to figure out what to do when he grows up while studying Computer Science at the University of Helsinki, Finland.
