knowledge without arrogance
Technology should make our lives easier not more difficult or more confusing. I don't believe in problems, only solutions. I don't believe "NO" is an answer to a problem. Even if an issue or problem is outside my skills or beyond the limits of my tools. I can and have always learned more and more often than not, compensate for the limits of my tools by finding ways to stretch their limits.
Any project, whether large or small is like the riddle: How do you eat an elephant? Which is one bite at a time. In Agile projects I have seen this demonstrated best in with well made card tasks broken down to their smallest achievable points. Even before Agile was a standard, I always found it more efficient to break up my work in smaller segments. Which I always test, as I work on them, so debugging is significantly easier when the inevitable issue or bug appears.
I have worked on disruptive technologies in the past and I have accomplished things other people have not been able to achieve at several jobs. Is this because I am better, or smarter than everyone else? Not at all. I believe I am just more dedicate, determined, curious, and focused than the average IT professional. I also have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and am always trying new things, whether it is technologies, programing languages, hobbies, or even food. I grow with every new experience. I would love to work with people who are all smarter and more talented than I am because that has always been the best way for me to learn more. Sharing skills and knowledge within a team is one of the strongest qualities I am seeking.
