Jan has been working as a programmer for 5 years now. Jan loves to program. He knows a lot of languages, and a lot of tools. At work, he's not always happy because the circumstances often don't allow him to deliver the quality he knows he can reach. Jan explores new technologies and trends on the internet, in books and magazines.
At night Jan contributes to an open source project together with 10 other guys, from all over the world. That's where he heard about agile methodologies. In the open source group, he's used to working with unit tests, but he hopes to get some real in-depth tips and tricks from experts at the XP Days conference. He's also interested to learn about the latest trends for continuous integration tools and test automation.
