I am a SoftwareDevelopmentCoach?
and applying AgilePrinciples
. I prefer to coach by being JustaProgrammer PairProgramming
with my teammates or facilitating workshops with games. I am an independent consultant operating from my own company Living Software B.V.
I am interested in, amongst other things, ExtremeProgramming
. Some of my favorite authors are KentBeck
When I started out as a consultant, I found the work of DavidMaister
illuminating. I'm not so sure any more about that. What remained was SecretsOfConsulting
, some SolutionSelling?
Playing games to learn and share experience is fun. For instance the XpGame
and games from the SystemsThinkingPlaybook?
One of my favorite Extreme activities is to ReFactor
, especially when using a RefactoringBrowser
or similar tools. Refactoring results in SimplyUnderstoodCode
If you would like to meet me or other extreme programmers in the Netherlands or Flanders, visit the wiki at http://www.xp-nl.org
(in dutch), the official wiki of the DutchXpCommunity
Favourite languages: RubyLanguage
also ran: PythonLanguage
. Finally after several years of practice more and more people are starting to see the limitations of the overly complex J2EE :-)
gets me 100% CodeCoverage
. Build, install/checkout and monitor scripts are in RubyLanguage
these days. Using Ant for this was way too complicated.
