newest Los Techie

Thanks to all the Los Techies for inviting me to join the group. For those who haven’t met me, I am software developer and team lead in Austin Texas. I currently work for Drillinginfo, a smallish company that gathers data about the domestic oil and gas industry and then sells it through a subscription-based website. I manage the Data Integration group, consisting of myself and 4 other developers. I’ve been here about 2 years, and have been working on converting the company from ‘slash and burn’ development to a more disciplined Scrum/XP process.

When I’m not writing software, I take photos, do woodworking, and play with my kids. I’ve recently started learning Tae-Kwon-Do with my youngest daughter, which has been really cool. 

I have been blogging on and off since 2003 – first on blogger (http://stevedonie.blogspot.com/) and then on my own server (Something Pithy at http://donie.endofinternet.org/pebble/Steve/ ). At the Austin Tech book club the other day I mentioned that I was having some technical difficulties with my blog, and John invited me to start posting here. I’m really excited to be a part of this great group of developers.
