Moving to Process forum...


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

I don't get it. Josh is a well-known authority in the XP community.

I've dipped into the industrial logic site from time to time but frankly I never heard of the man until today.

Well, he probably isn't as well-known as Ron or Uncle Bob outside of the XP community. But he certainly has made his name in the community (even before http://industrialxp.org/ ... )

I've had the pleasure of meeting Mr Kerievsky. He's infatuated with games, and runs a lot of hands-on, game related workshops at conferences where he presents XP practices.
The book Refactoring to Patterns has been in the works for years now. Anyone know if he's close to publishing it?
