The World of XPLabs
After a number of years working with development processes in teams, I discovered Extreme Programming in 1999. XP was a new and effective way for resolving problems. That’s when I got the idea for a company organized on XP principles to bring out the maximum potential in software development.
In September 2000 I founded XPLabs as an authentic “XP” lab: a place to produce software, conduct applied research, experiment, innovate and scientifically observe XP; a place where change was always possible, a jumping off point for the next step.
In ten years XPLabs has created new businesses, new teams, new interests and a new way of doing business: our next step forward.
This new way of doing business requires a new mission and company organization. Once again, we have decided to make a change: a new name, a new organization and way of working, taking to heart what we have learned from XPLabs.
Starting today XPLabs is now FC Garage.
