Part 7 of the Corsair23 series. Moving to the next set of stories, we get deep into architectural and business considerations. What can we do? What should we do? What's the best architectural compromise to meet the needs of the business? What does failure look like?

From a recent industry presentation. Typical large project comparison of lines-of-code between a C# and F# program. Remember: fewer lines of code means fewer bugs.

Agreed that LOC is a rough metric and easy enough to make fun of. Just was too complicated to go over the rest of it. The video is worth watching.

Part 6 of my Corsair series is out. 30 minutes of business context for the next user stories. Probably only going to do 2-3 more of these and then take a break and let the code provide some value for a while -- earn its keep.

Yesterday I had the wind to my back, so I managed to finish my first story and do some needed cleanup. I've got one more week until I start working with another client. Thinking seriously about doing the second story. The thing is, starting completely from scratch, you have to watch a few stories get done to really understand how it all comes together.

Part 4 of the series.

Made it to the end of the first story, but there's a bunch of cleanup still to do. Will probably do that this morning. So there will be a Part 5 of the 3-part video series. Sigh.

Lately I've been recording videos of my programming.

I've always thought of programming as not being very exciting, so I thought I'd post a video of a friend of mine at work for all my aviation buddies.

Rich is known as the "Spin Doctor". Here he is at work taking a Decathlon through its paces.

I spent about 30-40 hours with Rich over the years learning what could best be called "practical aerobatics". Incredibly fun stuff. Makes me wish I had kept flying!

You guys tell me if any of this is bugging you. There's no sales in here -- no email sign-up forms, no links to corporate sites. It's just one guy (me) writing and application and talking about programming and Agile/Lean/XP/Kanban stuff

This was probably the roughest video so far, as I thrashed madly with BASH, which I haven't used in many months. But, that's programming, so it deserves to be in the series.

I love complaining about the snow, but it certainly is beautiful. The bird feeders certainly get very popular on days like this :)

Fooling around with the camera this morning. I've got some ideas for some fun/artsy stuff, but I never seem to have enough time to execute.

Introduction
Hey there. I'm Daniel Markham. You might know me from my blog, What To Fix. Or you might have seen me on Hacker News.I big into Agile and making teams look more like Google and less like the IRS. I founded Tiny Giant Books, the best place on the internet for Agile help. You might not know that I run a couple of other small sites, like one for Paycheck Stub Trivia and one to help folks with Neuropathy in Feet.

I'm always interested in hearing stories about small teams and startups, and I love reading a good author. I like long walks in the park, a warm sunset after a long day's work, and 

Sorry. Wrong profile.
