It is possible to write software that solves real business problems, cheaply and reliably. The recipe is well known, even though it's not easy to do.

I am an Extreme Programmer. I help individuals, teams and organization become more effective. I'm lucky to work as a developer for ThoughtWorks, mostly in the Milano area. I used to teach at Università dell'Insubria.

1980: Once a year, my music teacher, for whom Tchaikovski was the most modern musician he knew, asked us to play 2 examples of what he called "popular music". My friend brought Visage´s "Fade to Grey" and I became courageous and played Ruckzuck, the whole 7:50. After this my teacher and my mates thought of me as a complete idiot. Sweet youth, where have you gone... Trotta Von Sipolje commenting on a Kraftwerk song on YouTube
