3) have client review working copies
4) classify changes as change in scope, additional work, and/or change or clarification of existing requirements
5) make changes and continue at step 2 until project complete.

Service Description

I prefer to nail down requirements and use the least technology needed to complete the client's desired solution.

I've spent 1.5 years between a Rails ecommerce and HR intranet, and an additional 9 years developing Java websites with various technologies: 3 years in Struts, more than 3 years in custom taglibs with JSP and code-generating frameworks with XML/XSL. Also 2 years on webservices between Rails and Java. Some DOJO work and a lot of custom Javascript.

I am currently working in Groovy and going to start with Grails to leverage my Java, Tomcat, and Rails experiences. Full resume available at chris.dagnon.net/work/resume
