This site contains entries related to what I am proud to do as a profession. I will update this page as this site develops.
Who am I?
I work mainly as a Technical Leader and an agile coach for Thoughtworks. Sometimes this means taking on a variety of roles including advisor, trainer, facilitator, team lead, technical lead, or being a plain old developer. I’ve worked with supremely large organisations (10, 000s of people) to very small organisations (20 people) helping them deliver better return on investments for their projects.
My passion is working closely with teams, helping them grow and learn with sustainable and long-term change. As a result, one of my favourite team practices is the Retrospective, a tool that allows people to Inspect and Adapt. I believe strongly in self-empowered teams and individuals, having seen many talented people beaten down by the systems they work in.
What I do?
Though I work as an agile coach, I still sit border of both the technical and non-technical realms. Both provide an interesting assortment of practices and situations. I’ve mainly written production systems in both .Net and Java encompasses all sorts of technologies, though I think I think it’s the patterns and practices that tend to last longer than a particular solution. I’m passionate about using the right techniques for the right job, and for the right level and believe in pragmatic agile practices. Over the years, I’ve had tons of experience with a large variety of agile practices, all the way from continuous integration (and build pipelines) to Test Driven Development and Refactoring.
