I'm Woody Zuill. I’ve been programming computers for over 30 years, and I'm currently the Agile Coach for a development team - the "Mob". For the past 15+ years I've worked continuously as an Agile Coach and/or developer in both large and small environments, and have trained over 20 teams and 200+ developers in Agile practices. I believe code must be simple, clean, testable, and maintainable so we can respond to change while quickly delivering working software. I have a passion for bringing unmaintainable code back into a manageable, healthy state.
