    About the quote “Better late than sorry BUT better sorry than never” it reminds me a lot a quote from “La Casa de Bernarda Alba” by Federico Garcia Lorca (it hitted me a lot when I read it long time ago)

  6. Hi Alberto,

    first of all, congratulations for your blog. In just 6 months I’ve been able to read it and from now on I’m gonna use it as a reference.

    I couldn’t agree more with you on almost everything you write.

    No more to say, just good luck and thanks a lot for writing all these good things on software development 😉

    A ver si te vienes a España y promueves esa manera de programar que aquí se estila poco.

    Un saludo y Gracias

    I wasn’t able to find your email address so I thought I’d post a comment here. :-) We were looking to have a few Agile artiles commissioned for publication on DZone and I was wondering if you might be interested in authoring a few of these?
