I am VERY interested in getting into another Extreme Programming project. I ran the XP team for Sage Systems (company went under due to lack of funding of Energy startups), and participated as both the manager and as a developer. We didn't implement everything (no pair-programming for example), but did use most of the methodology. It was GREAT! The business partners LOVED it.
So. I'm looking for another one. I am interested in either full-time in the San Francisco, East Bay area, or contracting anywhere (on-site or remote).
Contact me for more info. Thanks,

I'm a programmer who lives near Waltham, Massachusetts. I want to find an XP job in a Java environment near here. I've been a programmer for decades and when I read Kent Beck's book "eXtreme Programming eXplained - EMBRACE CHANGE" it gave me hope that there might be a shop where productivity is valued over ego.
When I got my first job as a programmer, I was thrilled that someone would actually pay me to do something I loved to do. However, time has taught me that I get paid for all the non-programming stuff:
- Generating schedules which only work because you KNOW the dependent project won't be done when they say.
- Office politics.
- Helping a new person get up to speed only to have them 1) leave or 2) publish your ideas as theirs.
- Explaining to the clueless boss why his "great" idea is stupid.
- Writing specifications which are rarely read and which are NEVER updated to reflect the final version.
- Being forced to maintain code which should have been tossed years ago.
I'd program even if I didn't get paid for it (However, I do have a family so I need to get paid.).
