What is your level of experience with patterns and practices? (Novice is okay!)
I've been programming for over 30 years, and was quite interested in patterns at one time. I now concentrate on evolving systems using Kent Beck's rules of simple design and letting the design patterns emerge.
I'm a software development consultant with a background in programming (& hardware design). I help teams and organizations develop software more effectively. My company website is http://idiacomput... and my blog is http://gdinwiddie...
