About Steve Perkins


What would you say… I do here?

Office Space Bobs

I’ve been an Atlanta-based software developer for over 15 years (resume), focused on back-end service integration and web development.  I’ve worked primarily in Java environments, with secondary exposure to .NET and limited forays into Scala and Golang.  I am the author of the book Hibernate SearcHibernate Search book coverh by Example, from Packt Publishing.  I have also worked with Packt more recently as a technical reviewer for other projects, ranging from the database to middleware to writing single-page applications with JavaScript.


I’m currently an architect at BetterCloud, developing security and analytics SaaS products for companies using Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365.

Whenever I research a problem or question online, I always appreciate when some blogger took the time to write up that exact issue. Maybe some random post that I write will be useful to other people in turn.  Perhaps that person will be me, when I inevitably run into the same issue six months later and forget what I knew!
