I am a a physicist and software engineer specialized in server to server communication, mainly using Java, Python, c++ and c
I was one of the last developers involved in Scarab, a Java based Issue tracking system. Two years ago we decided to abandon Scarab and replace it with Phabricator. Unfortunately we committed our move to Phabricator just 2 weeks before Phabricator decided to shutdown.
