Full stack engineer. I've done a lot of work on the JVM (Java/Scala/Clojure) and I've done a lot of web stuff (HTML/CSS/JS).

JDH - Agreed. I'm still deliberating whether to show my brother this question. Not sure if I want to burst his bubble...

comment Paying off a mortgage twice as fast?
Arturo: The best way I can describe it is in terms of looking at a mortgage statement/bill. When paying a mortgage, one has the option to pay more than required. The amount that is overpaid is applied to the principal. The mortgage statement also has a field that tells how much of the payment is going towards interest and how much is going towards principal. My brother doubles this field (the amount going towards principal) and overpays by that amount.
