Currently, I am a programmer at medium-sized J2EE developing company in the Netherlands. I used to be a Dutch PhD student in astronomy. I found c2 when surfing the web for information on Python and XML programming. I successfully applied some of the XP practices to both my programming exploits and my academic work. I have used CodeUnitTestFirst on my astrophysical research and it's going so fast! :-) I'm still trying to fit XP into my work in the IT business. The company I work with still adheres to some of the WaterFall ideas, but release schedules are pretty agile due to influences of DSDM.
I hope I can also contribute to the Wiki.
