I am a programmer. In the past 30+ years I have written innumerable applications, many of which are still running today. Dealing with long lived applications has left me deeply biased towards practical solutions that produce working software that is easy to change.
I am also someone who explains things, but I have difficulty speaking without drawing on the whiteboard and feel inarticulate unless the conversation includes at least three colors.
I believe in simplicity; simple code, and straightforward explanations, and strive for it in my code and in my writing.
