Jeremy Cromwell is still a WikiNewbie
who is excited to read the many ideas represented here. Many are unfamiliar (or even contrary to everything I've ever been told I believe in
), but the ones he's seen in practice (especially PairProgramming
) are too exciting (and (more importantly?) work too well) to be dismissed easily.
Links he wants handy:
He jumped past RecentChanges
and became an unrepentant QuickChangesJunkie
(who does prefer to let the editors have their anonymity). He also finds the aspect of typing in a URL that may or may not lead someplace interesting interesting. He appreciated StartingPoints
He enjoys stories of HeroicDebugging
), and hasn't (yet) assumed an AnonymousIdentity
. He isn't that interested in WikiOnWiki
discussions, even after giving them an honest try.
He has an (unhealthy?), almost Lisp-(Scheme-?)like habit to (over)parenthesize (and make up words (to the delight of spellcheckers (including this one) everywhere))).
He no longer chooses to work for those who simply want him to SweatMore
He rarely reads (and plans on never again contributing to) OffTopic
pages. (So many one-line zero-content pages, so little time.) He continues to lurk.
He learned to use ToolCommandLanguage
(that's tcl to you!) and found its abilities to be exciting, but its use demoralizing.
He played with DolphinSmalltalk
and wouldn't mind working with it, but got lost in his wandering.
He discovered PythonLanguage
and found TrueLove
(or, at least, perl without the line noise). At this time, he as dismissed RubyLanguage
He is an advocate of ExtremeProgramming
, and is looking forward to putting the ExtremeProgrammingCorePractices
into practice in his new job.
He knows the solution to the MontyHallProblem
- And he taught it to MattSimpson
