I have been privileged to be featured in many books, magazines, and blogs. Some of the mentions are included below.
September 2018: Goodreads
This is an excellent book if you want to get to get to know Typescript. It’s written with attention to detail, plenty of solid examples, and gives a pretty good deep dive. I know it’s a small thing, but I also appreciated the variety of quotes from old software development luminariesMark Nenadov on Goodreads

June 2016: SC Magazine – Best Email Security Solution
Glasswall’s Email Security solution has won “Best Email Security Solution” in the SC Magazine Awards.
June 2016: ZenHub on Medium
If a developer is interrupted with a question, it could put their work back by hours for each interruption. This is because of the amount of stuff they are holding in their immediate memory while they are working on a feature. They will have parsed lots of code in the area they will be working on and will have projected their changes in their mind before they start coding and the interruption will impact their focus on this information.
Once interrupted the developer may decide to batch other interruptions like email into the break — but this elongates the gap and makes it more likely that the information will be squirrelled away into harder to access places.ZenHub on Medium
September 2015: Clojure for Data Science
Henry Garner gives a quick mention to some of my opinions on pie charts in his Clojure for Data Science book.
July 2015: Class Four: Those Who Survive
Duncan P. Bradshaw has immortalized me in the zombie novel, Class Four: Those Who Survive. I am not one of those who survive!
Class Four: Those Who Survive, is a total blast of a novel from beginning to end and, like its predecessor, is one of the better interpretations of the zombie apocalypse.Ginger Nuts of Horror
May 2015: Beginning Data Science with R
Manas Pathak mentions my take on pie charts in this introduction to data science and the R language, Beginning Data Science with R.
March 2015: JAXenter
Natali Vlatko talks about #NoEstimates and mentions some of my thoughts on the subject (along with those of some of the #NoEstimates thought leaders).
Fenton advises that to eventually work without estimates requires a building of trust that may not already exist, therefore you shouldn’t be aiming for #NoEstimates without it. He feels the anger that has been thrust upon the topic has come out of a misunderstanding of the framework, with people interpreting the phrase ‘some teams have found that they don’t need to use estimates’ as ‘YOU must stop using estimates’.Natali Vlatko on JAXenter
January 2015: Rob D Moore
Rob Moore mentioned my Unit Testing Epiphany article in a post discussing Ian Cooper’s “TDD Where Did it all Go Wrong” talk.
Ian suggests that the original TDD Flow outlined by Kent Beck has been lost in translation by most people. This is summed up nicely by Steve Fenton in his summary of Ian’s talk (highlight mine)…Rob D Moore
