"I've been Agile-ing since the book XP Explained came out. I started as a 12-year-old with a home computer, writing code for fun. I became a developer, team lead, architect, manager, ... When my colleagues-friends and I used the XP ideas, we wrote our best code ever. I added on Scrum as I became interested in awesome teams, not just awesome individual tech skills. And that led to my interest in emotional intelligence and other factors for high-performance teams in general." -- Richard commenting on his Agile and technical background
