How I can help you

Better Software, Sooner

Did that trigger you? Good! I am a passionate advocate of the principles and practices of Continuous Delivery, DevOps, Lean & Agile and eXtreme Programming. I am convinced that teams and organizations can produce significantly better software and go to market earlier, by applying those principles and practices. I challenge you to transform your development process and let go of traditional and suboptimal methodologies.

I’m an energetic and goal-oriented pragmatist. I have opinions and the experience to back them up. I am a hands-on T-shaped engineer with a strong (cloud native) software development background. I know what it takes (and brings!) to be part of a high-performing team in a competitive market. I know how untested, legacy software can quickly mire an organization.

I’ve had the pleasure of honing and applying my leadership skills over the years while training, coaching and leading several teams. I’ve also been privileged to speak at various (international) community events and conferences.

I’m looking forward to meet you, and together discover how I can create an impact in your organization!

I’d love to get to know you! Send an e-mail to michiel AT michielrook DOT nl, or message @michieltcs on twitter.
