Agile Software Development

Agile software development is a major methodology research area for me. Of particular importance is adapting it to the large, complex programs that I work with on a regular basis. These are just some generic links.

Project Management

Although project management is not always thought of highly in the agile community, it is a necessity, in my opinion. Learning how to take the best of the project management world and apply it to more adaptive situations is of great interest. These are just some generic links.

Presidential Quotes

John Adams, 2nd President of the United States

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of the facts and evidence.

— John Adams, December 1770


Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.

— Abraham Lincoln

Welcome

Welcome to my online home! This web site is a consolidation of my personal web site (from ages past) and my Pace University doctoral program web site. As such, it has some information that you might find on a personal site (secured, when appropriate), some of my general interests, my software development and methodology research, and, when I have time to add it, a blog. I expect that the site will continue to evolve and change as my interests grow and/or change.

Fall Pictures - Litchfield, CT and Harris Hill Farm

The kids and I went up to Litchfield, CT to take some pictures. The fall leaves at this time of year always force a picture trip for us. This year, the colors have been somewhat muted—there is much more yellow than red and the colors do not seem as bright. Nevertheless, we got some good shots. I used my digital SLR while teaching Samantha how to use my T70 35mm camera (and taking a few shots myself). Benjamin got to use my Fuji A101—and did a pretty nice job for a six-year-old!

I have posted a few of the better shots on their own page. Family members can see them in Kodak Gallery.

DPS Program Papers and Files

Although this web site is designed to consolidate two personal web sites (one for my DPS program and my "family" web site), that consolidation is not complete. My DPS papers, files, and references still appear on my DPS Web Site.

Family Web Site

My former family web site is quite old, but it does have some interesting links and content on it. Like the DPS web site, it is hoped that I can eventually consolidate the content into this web site and dispense with it.
