I am Steve Schols, born and raised in Antwerp in the small but beautiful country of Belgium. I’m a frequent attendant of Devoxx and dream about attending JavaOne.
In 2004 I graduated as a Bachelor in Applied Information Technology at Karel de Grote in Antwerp. I also got a solid economical background during my education.
In 2005 I started working as a Java software engineer for RealDolmen, a large systems integrator and services provider in Belgium.
At RealDolmen I received a thorough on-the-job training, further enhancing my knowledge and skills, and preparing me for real-world projects.

About this blog
I will mainly blog about the Java ecosystem and the Java language in particular. At this moment I’m not yet into non-Java JVM languages like Groovy or Scala.
I mainly try to concentrate on learning and working with Java EE, but I also have a good knowledge of Spring, Hibernate and Struts.
In this blog I will discuss issues I encountered, problems I solved and technology and frameworks I investigated.
I’ll post in English, although my native language is Dutch.
Everything I post will be my own opinion and findings. You can always post constructive feedback on my blog.
All statements made here are solely my own and do not represent the opinions of my employer, colleagues or my clients.
