I no longer even remember when you first participated in the simulation. Before AYE 2007, certainly. (You participated when I ran it at AYE 2007 and it was not your first time.)
Knows the innate value of writing human friendly, SOLID code.

Dale's code is among the most pristine I have ever had the great joy to work with. He takes as much care with the readability of his code as he does with the readability of his prose. His code organization also exhibits his great clarity of thought.

Dale is one of the best instructors I know. He is fully present while teaching. He attends to the individuals in the room and what they want/need to learn. I would take a class on how to read a phone book from him: the nominal subject might not interest me, but if Dale is teaching I am guaranteed to learn something profound.

I have attended a few Agile-related classes either *with* Dale, or *by* Dale. In either case, he has proven to be extremely knowledgeable in his subjects and extraordinarily helpful when questions arise in everyday work-life. In short: Dale is a star! :)
