I have now moved on from ThoughtWorks, after making a great many wonderful friends. In recent months I have experienced a vigorously renewed interest in small projects built on open source and common sense, presumably in a reaction to a cumulative overdose of enterprise projects built on Java and waffle.

A state of acute fatherhood has turned my mailbox into a black hole for communication about existing projects (PyUnit in particular), but a good friend and I have still managed to write some useful open-source code. As yet unreleased and unlicenced, Airspeed is an uncomplicated template library whose templates are compatible with those written for Velocity.

(Oh, and I also recently fixed up dbdoc to generate Oracle schema documentation with Jython + zxJDBC -- this plugs nicely into Ant builds. Column comments are read directly from the schema when they are available. Code available on request, until I get time to cut a release.)
