Ahh... not since my freshman year have I seen such interest in the Waterfall methodology. Too bad it's a joke, because it's a conference I might actually be able to get my company to pay for.
What makes this so funny and sad at the same time is that I have worked with people who are so thourhly characterized by some of these bios, except there use nicer terms that are friendlier to their point of view. I mean, who writes a 600 page object model without implementing it once? And then when we do implement the smallest part of it using his choice of data model he complains about the performance?
I only wish that the "it all flows downhill" mentality existed only in software engineering.
