Hello, I'm Thierry de Pauw
Agile Technical Coach - Software Engineer
Hire me!

About me

Lean/XP Full-Stack Software Engineer with a DevOps mindset. I do backend development and frontend development. I set up development infrastructures, define software and enterprise architectures, have lots of interest in operations and coach teams in adopting eXtreme Programming principles.

Along the years I have been a bit everything: Software Engineer, (Architect), Technical Team Leader, Scrum Master, Product Owner and Agile Technical Coach.

I like to help teams in creating meaningful software, with a keen eye for code quality and software delivery process - from customer interaction to continuous delivery. Instead of balancing quality & delivery, I believe and practice that better quality is actually a way to more and better deliveries. To me feature delivery and code quality goes hand in hand.


Software engineering

My primary role is "Software Engineer". I code and I am passionate about it. This is my bread and butter. But I am not a Monkey Coder. I do the whole shebang from inception over coding, testing to releasing into production and monitoring the damned application.

I pay a lot of attention to quality of code and maintainability.

Without these skills, I cannot be a proper Agile Technical Coach and I cannot set up a Continuous Delivery pipeline. Everything I know, I learned through delivering working software in production.

Agile Technical Coaching

Based on the 15+ years of experience delivering software projects I can help teams in adopting eXtreme Programming skills like Test Driven Development, Refactoring, Pair Programming, Test Automation, Simple Design, Collective Ownership, Continuous Integration.

Continuous Delivery

I can advise your organisation in adopting and setting up a Continuous Delivery pipeline so every commit becomes a potential release candidate reducing the time needed to get a new feature or a bug fix in production.

Continuous Delivery goes far beyond the technical solution. It implies Simple Design for your software and enterprise architecture and adopting Lean Principles. Here also I can advise your organisation.
