Weaving Wonderful Worlds

Agile. The path of least resistance.

For those interested in learning, re-learning, expanding knowledge, or those just curious by nature the following lectures are very simple to digest. The primary focus is on using agile programming concepts in a simple environment (read; Python, Subversion, cygwin/unix) . A brief look at on the homepage the lecture listing will give you a healthy idea of what is covered.
