A certified Agile and DevOps trainer, James started off his professional career as a junior web developer, before realising that his strengths were most certainly elsewhere!
An organiser of the South Wales Agile Group; James combines passionate knowledge of software development with industry-leading insights into practical applications of Agile and DevOps principles. A regular industry speaker at meetups and conferences, James’ favourite topic to cover is around how Agile implementations need to look beyond Scrum.
Since DevOpsGroup’s acquisition of Agile Snap, in 2018, James has been building up a portfolio of Academy training offerings including the creation of the BCS; British Computer Society accredited Foundation Certificate in DevOps course. He is always looking at creative ways to make learning as engaging and focused as it possibly can be.
When he’s not sat at his desk or running a training session, James can normally be found at a racing circuit in the UK, participating in a C1 Racing Club endurance race at club motorsport level. He also spends some time attempting to impart some Agile and DevOps wisdom onto his 5 year old daughter (and wife).
Our new online course for the Foundation Certificate in DevOps makes training accessible and stress-free.
