David West
Dave West 想要自诩为一名电脑极客(sheik geek)。遗憾的是,其他人都不想这样描述他,他们认为他是一个专业的英国人,喜欢以传道士般的无比耐心与热情谈论软件开发的最佳实践。最近,Dave转职到Ivar Jacobson Consulting。在那里,他负责美洲事务。现在,他可以把与人谈论软件开发和推销橄榄球与足球的热情结合起来,并且与人辩论板球比棒球更加刺激的话题。
在为Ivar Jacobson Consulting负责美洲事务之前,Dave为Rational Software
(现已成为IBM的一部分)工作过几年。Dave在Rational与IBM担任过许多职务,包括RUP的产品经理。在那里,他将流程插件(process plug-ins)与敏捷式(agility)开发的观念带进RUP。你能通过dwest@ivarjacobson.com与他联络。Dave West would like to describe himself as sheik geek. Unfortunately
no one else would describe him in that way. They would say he is a
professional Englishman who likes to talk about software development best
practices with the passion and energy of an evangelical preacher. Recently
Dave has moved to Ivar Jacobson Consulting, where he runs the Americas
and can combine his desire to talk about software development and spread
the word on rugby and football, and argue that cricket is more exciting that
Before running the Americas for Ivar Jacobson Consulting, Dave worked
for a number of years at Rational Software (now a part of IBM). Dave held
many positions at Rational and then IBM, including Product Manager for
RUP where he introduced the idea of process plug-ins and agility to RUP.
