Introduction I'm 33 years old (hex). I've loved software since I was 10 (dec). I run my own software consultancy specializing in practice, people, process, agility, test driven development, and complex-adaptive systems-thinking. I built to promote deliberate practice for software developers. I've worked with Accenture, Aviva, Cisco, Ericsson, Friends Provident, HP, Microsoft, Opera, Ordnance Survey, RBS, Reuters, Renault F1, Schlumberger, Tandberg and many many more. If you don't like my work I won't invoice you. I'm the ex TG2 C# convenor. I'm the ex ACCU conference chairman. I've had some C# books published. I'm married to the beautiful Natalie, and proud father of Ellie, Penny and Patrick. I love coarse fishing and salmon fishing. I live in Somerset, England. On twitter I'm @JonJagger
