Snake charming via Test Driven Development:

"Test-driven development (TDD) is a software development process that  
relies on the repetition of a very short development cycle: first the  
developer writes a failing automated test case that defines a desired  
improvement or new function, then produces code to pass that test and  
finally refactors the new code to acceptable standards.".

Vaughan Allan:

"VP Software Engineering at Platform46 Pty Ltd. Founder: Thinkers  

"A prominent interest in languages and patterns, web frameworks,  
cluster computing and functional programming. A big fan of AppEngine  
and all things Google. Specialties: Java, Perl, Python/Django, C/C++,  
ColdFusion, Javascript/XML/AJAX/DHTML, Groovy/Grails, Erlang,  
Distributed Systems..."
