In all code, I strive for brevity (without loss of legibility). The less code there is, the less places there are for bugs to lurk.

While contributing here, I have learned that say not that you know something until you try to teach it.

My real name is Glen Edmonds.

FYI, that cute animal I use for my avatar is a wombat.

comment What to do if a team member misses a sprint planning?
We used to make the person buy scones for the rest of the team. Then we all started getting fat, so now we shoot them instead.
