Demystifying Extreme Programming: Cutting through the hype of XP:

"Object-oriented programming in the Java language has become immensely popular. It is even revolutionizing software development to some degree. Still, recent studies show that half of all software development projects are late, and one-third are over budget. The problem isn't the technology; it's the way we develop software. So-called "agile" approaches coupled with the power and flexibility of object-oriented languages like Java, just might be the answer. The most popular agile approach is called Extreme Programming, or XP, but many people don't really know what it is. Using XP on your software development projects can increase your chances of success dramatically. This new column by Roy Miller, which begins by revisiting his popular article, "XP distilled," will strip away the rumors and the hype to help you understand XP and explain why it is so important. "

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
