Having worked in software development for more than ten years, I have developed a lot of opinions & beliefs, but one stands out amongst the crowd: "You can have the best and latest tools in the business, but unless you have a group of people committed to a quality delivery, using processes that are comfortable and supportive, then your delivery is doomed."
With this in mind, my intention with this blog is to talk about the things that, over a ten year period, have made the difference. I'm not a guru, I dont have all the answers, but I do have opinions borne of experience, and I offer them freely for dissection and discussion.
Who am I? My background is in Microsoft bespoke development, latterly using .Net technologies. I have used many software development methodologies on projects ranging from tiny to Enterprise-ready and I now lead a small team of developers and continue to push for better and faster.
