I've been developing software for more than 13 years, and my long term focus was on fixing software development. I'm doing my part now by teaching and coaching people on unit testing, TDD, pair programming, clean code, refactoring etc., either in open or in-house classes or in free community events - my favourite being the code retreat (and I recently realized that I'm the second most experienced code retreat facilitator, starting a little after Corey Haines).

This author bio is preserved from the old blog. Alex only contributed one article to No Time To Play early on, but continued to offer encouragement long after that.
