Those of you who know me will be aware that I am part of Head West Software (scroll down to see my mug shot), a startup based in Oregon, US. Now that we have released our first product,ALM Suite, I hope to be using my blog to tell the world more about what we are doing, so expect to see more here about Application Lifecycle Management , running a startup and my views on software development and open source software. I will of course be following the excellent guidelines from Sun .
