    It’s amazing to see lots of initiatives like this to define what an Agile Developer must be.
    I’ve seen an article from the Scrum Alliance, they’re thinking about “Certified Scrum Developer”..
    I particulary like your implementation of the Agile Developer, I share your vision and I’ll try to promote this vision.
