Conversation with Jonathan Greenberg

While at Entryway Software, I had the opportunity and pleasure to pair with Jonathan Greenberg for several days. We spent the majority of the team fixing some failing acceptance tests (using Cucumber) and specs (using RSpec), which set us up for the last day, when we were able to build a great set of Cucumber features for some new functionality that we started implementing in one of their applications.

Jonathan and I had some fascinating conversations, as he is an experienced gardener, and he has some great insights on commonalities between gardening and programming.

Floyd, VA, was amazing. I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the town, the people I got to meet (including the Entryway folks and other people in the area), the work I got to do, and the jamming (trying to keep up with the bluegrass players) and dancing (not caring about keeping up with the flat-footers) I got to do on Friday night!

Enjoy this conversation with Jonathan Greenberg; I had a great time talking to him.
