About the Authors
The Agile community knows Yves Hanoulle from his many contributions, such as the public Agile conferences Google calendar, his Agile Thursday Quiz, the coach retreats and conferences he’s paired to organize, daily coaching questions via @Retroflections, and the Agile Games Google group, just to name a few. He promoted PairCoaching, an idea which has been adopted by many agile trainers and coaches. He’s constantly learning, and passing on what he learns as a coach and trainer to organizations large and small.
A self-identified change artist and first follower, one of Yves’ unique qualities is that he gives free lifetime support on anything he does: every client, everything he writes and presents, every workshop he leads.
Yves believes in maintaining a sustainable pace both professionally and personally. Yves has parentpair programmed an android game with his 13 year old son www.anguis.be You can learn more about Yves at http://www.hanoulle.be/yves-hanoulle/, and find him on social media as YvesHanoulle.
Je travaille dans le domaine de l'informatique (mais ce n'est pas tellement important), j'accompagne des personnes, des équipes, des organisations. Je leur offre mes compétences pour servir leur voyage vers l'atteinte de leurs objectifs. Mon métier consiste à faire un bout de chemin avec elles et à leur montrer lorsqu'elles passent à côté sans les voir, les fleurs qu'elles font éclore.
Le terme consacré dans mon domaine est "coach agile".
Since he owned a Sinclair ZX81 Ilan knew he wants to be a programmer. Which he did with great enthusiasm. Until one day he found that the small company he was working for turned into a big, process-rich, document-hungry mammoth. Programming and software projects were not so much fun anymore. Then he found Agile Software Development (or rather agile found him where he worked). The concept reminded him how much fun software development can be. Today Ilan loves helping hi-tech professionals fall in love with their workplace, so they can help their customers love the products that they make.
Ilan is co-author of "How to organize a CoachRetreat".
