Kevlin Henney talks with Dave Rael about the reasons for being independent, making observations about software development, sharing insight, and team experiences

Kevlin is an independent consultant and trainer based in the UK. His development interests are in patterns, programming, practice and process. He has been a columnist for various magazines and web sites, including Better Software, The Register, Application Development Advisor, Java Report and the C/C++ Users Journal. Kevlin is co-author of A Pattern Language for Distributed Computing and On Patterns and Pattern Languages, two volumes in the Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture series. He is also editor of the 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know site and book.

Kevlin's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Get a good night's sleep
  2. Do something positive that takes you outside of sitting in front of your computer. If you feel you don't have time to do it, do it twice.
  3. Review the way you do things - periodically, have a self retrospective
  4. Communicate - bring a social side to software development
