With a B.A. in Architecture and an M.Sc. in Computer Science, I've been working with Oracle since 1998. Most of this has 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.
