Quinn got hooked on programming in a computer introduction course. For over 20 years, he's never gone more than a couple months without programming something; even while getting a degree in physics. Quinn has always been looking for ways to improve the code he writes, and the code of fellow developers. After being introduced to FAST Agile (, TDD, and XP practices - he's become a vocal advocate for their adoption.

After an opportunity to learn from Object Oriented Programming from Fred George, Quinn has taken these practices to heart. His blog ( exists to record his experimentation of Object Oriented Programming. Less than a year after glomming onto actual Object Oriented Programming, Quinn coined "MicroObjects" ( as a development style to produce highly maintainable code, quickly, with a low defect rate.
