Contract software developer. I like getting things done.

My profile on Careers 2.0.

When not writing proper serious software I made Dark Mornings, Facebook FriendCull and kit return.com.

Instead of using real planning poker cards I wrote five-star rated Planning Poker++ for Android (GitHub source code).

comment Why does Microsoft have such a bad reputation with the people involved in open source?
There was also the supposed "DOS isn't done 'til Lotus won't run" story, but I think this has since been debunked.

comment Where do you declare variables? The top of a method or when you need them?
Agree with Binary W - if you have a list of variables in your function so long that you can order them "logically" then it's time to split up your function.
