I am De Long and I've been a professional programmer (and so much more) for about 7 years working for www.iteratec.de. As life goes I went from lowly grunt up to the trainer & coach position.
I enjoy training (here SCRUM as well) and coaching people so much that I decided to do it on my own for 3 years by now. I'm still nerd and geek to the bottom of my heart: I love gadgets (www.nomatic.com, https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/pamu-quiet-music-in-noise-out-never-fall-out#/updates/all), watch a lot of series (Brookly Nine Nine, Big Bang Theory..), reading fascinating books about interesting people and solving puzzles of any kind (especially the human behaviour).
I think I just shifted my skills and applied it to another kind of "software". The one in your brains and how to help you re-program yourself to be a different version of yourself (if you wish to).
