See James Carr's blog to understand the derivation of this blog post. The challenge: "confess five interesting things about myself that not a lot of people know about." Most of my close friends will know this stuff, but most of my close friends don't read my blog either. It's more than five things so I lumped a few things together.
There you have it. More than you wanted to know.
Today, I received the following post on a few of my Yahoo group lists (refactoring, scrumdevelopment, etc.):
I apologize for the spam, but I wanted to share with you a new initiative on the web to help large organizations make the transition to agile. I have been working with several customers over the past few years, and their biggest complaint to me has been about scaling up their agile transition when it's so expensive to find genuine agile experts. So many people have jumped on the bandwagon last year!
So we have joined forces with some large organizations, many of which you'd recognize, to take that first important step towards solving this problem. In the spirit of being agile, our first presence is small, but we're growing it incrementaly, so I hope you will show us your support.
Please visit http://www.agilecertificationnow.com to become certified and spread the word. It's easy!
I highly recommend clicking through the certification links. You'll also find a good letter from Tom DeMarco (which looks to be written in 1998) that talks about the value of certification.
