The current situation in the light of the impact of COVID-19 on the world is unprecedented. While the first priority should remain people’s health and well-being, there are also many challenges to face regarding the economic impact, business continuity and security.

That is why we are setting up a series of free webinars to share best practices and give concrete guidelines as an answer to current business questions.

I am a strategic software delivery consultant at Xebia. I strongly believe that context shapes meaning, so I focus my work on creating a shared sense of reality by tackling socio-technical complexity. My background in social sciences often brings new perspectives when it comes to Business & IT alignment.

In my role as a consultant I help our clients accelerate their software development process by setting up CI/CD pipelines (Gitlab/Jenkins/Bamboo), implementing automated tests (Cypress, Jest, Selenium) for modern (web-) applications (ReactJS, AngularJS, Bootstrap) and coaching teams in the Agile and DevOps mindset. I’m also invoked in software auditing projects; offering independent advice and recommendations.
