Dan Milstein is an independent programmer and consultant in the Boston area. He has spent many years building database-backed websites for various clients, and has become something of a Java and Servlet expert as a result. He worked for a time as a committer on the Tomcat project, during which period he salvaged the Tomcat-Apache connectors from disaster, largely by writing comments in other people's code. This is still his idea of a good time.
