Code well, manage well

I bring my experience of agile project management (Scrum + Kanban) and software development practices from corporate environments to help with open-source projects. I believe in taking the time to write good code and make good software. So I will usually advise to take the difficult path: take the time to learn what we're doing, to implement it properly and to communicate with all stakeholders. As they rightly say in the development world, "weeks of programming can save you hours of planning."

I also think it's important that software be built not by programmers alone, but by professionals from multiple disciplines and backgrounds: testers, visual designers, UX interaction designers, domain experts, managers, system administrators, users, etc. It's also good when the developers involved have as diverse backgrounds and interests as possible.

Skills: ActionScript + Flex, PHP, HTML+JS+CSS, Scrum, Kanban.

I am currently mentoring and coding on the ScavengerMobile project.

So check out my profile on TribalCoding and then contact me at mihaiattribalcodingdotcom if you'd like me to help with your project.

I have a confession to make, when I am making a prototype I will go begging to whatever programming language promises low-hanging fruit or whatever is fair game... when it is 3am and there is a deadline on to get a BETA out- welcome to the code 'chop shop of horrors'. Otherwise, when we have a specification set out and we have planned our time I will happily RTFM and program the 'good way'.

@samthetechie is currently mentoring @moskvax and @johtso our code is ending up over here:
