I have been using the term "Viking Coder" for a several years now. Honestly, it was a "equal and opposite" reaction to the rise of the Rockstar Ninja Samurai whatever in job descriptions. I don't play a guitar or dress in black PJ's. I am a big coder, and I like big, simple solutions to problems. And I have a least a little bit of Scandinavian in me.
I wanted to open this up, so steal, pull, push away!
Thus the Viking Coder was born.
The Viking coder is also a response to many of the Agile practices out there. We mean to strip the nonessential bits of cruft away and expose the naked goodness of what we have learned over the last few decades.
