Greetings and Salutations

I just wanted to give a shout out to the guys at Los Techies for inviting me to join the site. I’m just now getting things up and running (and testing MarsEdit with Community Server with this post) so I can easily post content to the site.

I met many of the Los Techies guys in Austin at ALT.NET and I’m sure several beers were consumed with a majority of them. It was a great experience and I’m excited to see the attention grow around the movement.

Personally, I’ve been in software development for nearly 20 years, but I’m new to agile development practices such as XP/Scrum. I’ve recently started an initiative to adapt agile development at work so I’ll certainly write about those experiences as they unfold.

In the meantime, “Tengo un gato grande en mis pantalones!”

    “Tengo un gato grande en mis pantalones!”
    Que horror!

  • Nice blue streak reference.

  • For those that don’t understand Spanish allow me to translate Chris’s phrase

    “Tengo un gato grande en mis pantalones!”

    Chris apparently has an obsession with a large felis silvestris catus. His obsession has led him to seek the constant comfort of entertaining this charismatic species in the warmth of the his trousers. While this has been known to cause great discomfort in many, Chris has developed a tolerance towards staph induced infections caused by felis silvestris catus’s scratches.

    Welcome Chris and your little fury friend! :-)

  • welcome once again Chris.

    I think alot of people would be very interested in seeing how one can go about adopting agile in the workplace.

  • Thanks again.

    I plan to blog the entire journey with the hope that others can benefit from the changes, methods and missteps that we make.
