Why that stupid name?

Why that stupid name?

Well, I had to put something in that title field! So, why not? I am not writing something I want to sell in bookstores, I write for the pleasure of writing and sharing my experience, short as it is. I needed a short name, meaningful, and easy to remember.

HeroQuest was my favorite game when I was a kid (yes, I am that old!).

And I like to envision myself as an adventurer fighting the evil forces of software entropy. They are powerful, but my will is strong. I am no victim in the dungeons of Castle Legacy. I hack and slash through bad code and technical debt! Along the way, I meet other adventurers and we join forces. Like in every good team, our skill sets complement each other.

On closer inspection, there are some similarities between building software and crawling a dungeon. After all, is this name «that» stupid? Anyway, you will have to deal with it. Enjoy… or leave.
