Curmudgeon, gorer of sacred cows, motivator, educator, author, and poet.


Cope has been working (and playing) with computer systems for 50 years. Over this time he has been an engineer, academic, coder, consultant, author, and speaker. He is a well-known author of books on programming language, design, culture and process, and Scrum. He still writes code. He has done VLSI, occasionally dives into the topic of testing, and works hard with both head and heart to make the world just a little bit better.
