Ian Homer

Coder and Coach


I code, coach & create. I’m a polyglot & passionate coder, with decades of software engineering experience. I'm in my zone when mobbing to collectively build systems that are a joy to develop and make a difference to the end users.

You’ll find me trying to improve my practices with Kanban ; lean production ; BDD ; codifying everything ; shifting left ; rapid feedback loops ; metrics & live dashboards ; CI/CD ; making bets ; being T-shaped ; empowering the whole team ; encouraging flow & North star alignment.

Delivering with the awesome team at WORTH.
