With a B.A. in Architecture and an M.Sc. in Computer Science, I've been working in software development since 1998. For the first few years a lot of this time was spent been battling with impossible deadlines, mountains of bugs and software upgrades that customers were terrified to receive. In April 2004 I was shown the way of eXtreme Programming by a couple of Thoughtworkers, and never looked back. Working in a team that always wants to improve means that we're producing quality software that people want to use, and we're always learning. I can't ask for a more rewarding combination.
