When I'm on a project, I'm usually a coach aiming to help people develop, integrate, and/or test great software. This often means a combination of technical mentoring, troubleshooting, and prototyping.
Usually I work with a mix of object technology, integration technology, and relational databases.
I'm a proponent of agile methods (particularly LeanDevelopment?) and promote them to my friends, co-workers, clients, etc. I also quite like TheCore.
