That’s probably more than you really needed to know but if not you can always read my LinkedIn resume and list of current publications. You could also look me up on StackOverflow.

A bit about this blog…

I originally started this blog on Windows Live as a journal of my adventures in agile software development. Since then it’s grown to cover some of the more interesting aspects of agile which I have first hand experiences in; distributed teams and large teams.

I still occasionally write code so there’s also a lot of posts on that, including some of the weird things I’ve been doing with parallel code, scientific or technical computing. You can’t talk about the same thing all the time so the same blog now covers some of the hardware I’ve built or bought and some experiments in Green (low power) computing.
