This is the technical blog for my codeworks, a small consultancy in Sweden. We help companies with architecture, training, test driven development and agile processes. On occasion we get to code a bit as well :)

We do project rescue when something has gone wrong or gotten stuck. But generally we prefer it if we get a call before the large demo saw is needed to cut into whatever wreak the project has turned into. We excel at starting projects on the right track and keeping them there (probably since we have been on so many disaster commissions).

We are foremen in the software industry and this is where we write about the values we hold and why they are important.

So here it is, my take, filled with facts, rhetoric and points.
