I’m co-author of the first book on Agile Coaching and an invited speaker to software conferences worldwide. I’m delighted to be invited to keynote at ALE again.
Although I started out working as a software developer working on real-time embedded systems. I became fascinated with debugging software organisations. I’ve been working in the field of Agile software development since 2000 and pioneered techniques that are now used by teams all around the globe.
My mission is to create workplaces where developers enjoy delivering valuable software. I work as coach for XP product development teams at Unruly in London and help organise Extreme Programmers London meetup. At weekends I like to get out of the city and go hiking.
Featured Talk: Building Learning in
As ALE2015 conference comes to a close, you will find yourself brimming with ideas and keen to share all you have learned when you get back to work. Your next challenge is how you can wake up your team mates to new ways of working.
At ALE you are surrounded by like-minded enthusiasts but your work colleagues are likely to be more skeptical about trying out new ideas. How can you maintain energy around these new ideas and ignite change across your organisation?
As a coach, my aim is to create an self-sustaining learning environment at work. In this talk, I will share many practical ideas from teams at Unruly. I will offer you some different ways to approach coding dojos, book club, lightning talks. I will also explain how we run developer exchanges with other companies.
Crucially I will explain how to make time for learning and share the responsibility for keeping it going across the team. Come to this talk to hear about how you can build learning in without burning out.
