About I am a programmer. I teach, consult, speak, and write about programming, software, software methodology, and the technology industry. I co-authored the book JBoss in Action (Manning Publications). I have a passion for Agile methodologies, particularly Extreme Programming.
I’ve written an ebook called ’My Kid Can Code: Computer Programming for Kids’ to get kids ages 6-10 started on programming.
I’m an entrepreneur and have worked on several startup businesses, but have yet to become a billionaire. I am the lead organizer for the Houston Lean Startup Circle and Startup Weekend Houston.
