After being thoroughly impressed by the training that I received when I joined ThoughtWorks I was driven to become a trainer myself. I did that in 2008 (yes it’s already been that long) and am a different person professionally since then.
I am documenting my experiences for future reference as a mulitpost on Training. As I continue posting the topics on the list here will become active. Maybe as you read it will excite you to be a trainer too.
