Working smarter, not harder: An interview with Kent Beck

wherein we learn that xp's origins can be found in the one of the oldest conundrums in the world. at least the software world:

"Up until then I believed better programming would solve all the world's ills. Yes, you can screw up the programming so badly you kill the project. Usually, however, the problem concerns relationships between the business people and the programmers, the budget process, poor communications -- factors unrelated to the programming. The context in which the software development takes place proves as important to the project's success as the programming itself."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ 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.
