I code.
I am not just a coder.
I am not a (ninja|rockstar|10xer).
I am a solid Developer, a Software Craftsman.
I fight to explain the intent of my code, to developers that follow.
I am comfortable with, and encourage, DevOps.

I test. First.
I am agile and pragmatic.
I add to production capacity, for everyone.

I can do it alone, but you really want me as a member of a team.
I excel in a team, gaining energy from working with others.
I tend to work harder for those around me, than I do for myself.
I fight to turn isolation into powerful collaboration.

I need input.
I aggregate information and see the connections.
I tend to be comparative and exploratory, rather than prescriptive.
I share (as coach, mentor, trainer, and presenter).
I support Free/Libre/Open Source Software.
I stay on the (b)leading edge.

I love this stuff.
