Amitai Schleier (@schmonz) is a software development coach, legacy code wrestler, non-award-winning musician, and award-winning bad poet. He publishes fixed-length micropodcasts at Agile in 3 Minutes, writes variable-length articles at, and contributes code and direction to notable open-source projects such as notqmail, pkgsrc, ikiwiki, and NetBSD. Amitai’s ideas, prose, music, and puns have manifested mostly at a variety of software-focused venues, but also at the International Rachmaninoff Conference and (to great success, unfortunately) the Alfred Joyce Kilmer Memorial Bad Poetry Contest.
