I really have no excuse for not posting.
Lazy? - Yep.
Too Busy? - Yep.
Other Things To Do? - Yep.
Well, I guess that's three excuses.
Anyway, what have I been up to since I last posted:
- Went to Code Camp with some guys from work - Dave, Eddie, Jenny, Richard and Paul. That was great. I got to catch up on what's over the horizon and even closer. And saw some old chums, Mitch, Geoff, Darren and more...
- I've been reading. A lot. The list since I last posted is:
"Head First Design Patterns"
"Extreme Programming Explained"
"Pragmatic Unit Testing in C# and NUnit"
"Refactoring to Patterns"
"Agile Project Management with Scrum
"The Design of Everyday Things"
"Test Driven Development in Microsoft .Net"
"Six Habits of Highly Effective Bosses"
"The On Time, On Target Manager"
And I'm in progress on:
"Extreme Programming Adventures in C#"
"About Face 2.0: The Essentials of Interaction Design"
Almost all of them were great, some of them not so much, but generally worthwhile.
- I've been busy at work. I been dev team lead on two projects so far, both successful. It's great to get Agile process in place and see how they just work.
- I've got people at work more interested in improving their skills and lending books to anyone that is interested.
I think that's about it...
