I'm a programmer, and now I'm an accidental publisher.
I wrote The Pragmatic Programmer with Andy Hunt at the end of the '90s, and that experience opened a new world for us. We discovered a love of writing that complemented our love of learning new things.
I'm one of the authors of the Agile Manifesto, and I'm probably responsible for bringing Ruby to attention of Western developers with the book Programming Ruby. I was one of the first adopters of Rails, and helped spread the word with the book Agile Web Development with Rails.
I enjoy speaking at conferences, running public and private training. But most of all, I love coding.
