GeekGorgeous and genetic algorithms
Lilac, who started working as a programmer at age 16, is now a senior software engineer with an acronym-rich skill-set that includes Java, J2EE, EJB, JSP, JMS, PHP, ASP, ADO, SQL, XML, UML, J2ME, MIDP and more. As an independent consultant, Lilac has worked on numerous business applications on various platforms, from home-automation systems to portfolio optimizers based on genetic algorithms. She's been a technical session speaker at multiple conferences, including Sun's Java One conference, the Borland Technology Conference, and the Denver Java Users Group. A “numbers girl”, Lilac’s latest obsession is data mining and statistical analysis of econometric data for an upcoming real estate investment application. Lilac also owns three video-game stores in Colorado.
