Hi, I’m Stiofain Padraig your coach, mentor, and trainer
Programmer to Software Engineering Leader over 30 years – started as an apprentice in 1990 and worked my way up though various Software Engineering and leadership roles. I know Software Development from the ground up. Software Development Management is the art and science of planning and leading software engineering projects and teams. I can give you the secrets to success.
Many domains - This allows me to bring new ideas to the table with knowledge & capability to compare & contrast from experience in variety domains. That has given me more efficiency and ultimately more strategy as I pick from the best tools, process, and technology.
Many project and product types - my most notable experience was software to automate Software Development practices, writing application frameworks, application & network monitoring, versioning & revisioning, continuous integration
Small local and complex large international projects
Waterfall and agile (Pragmatic) Guided more by practical considerations than by ideals of any tool, process, or technology. I know the time when to implement a quick or elegant and robust solution. I see a balance between practicality and perfection.
Many cultures - My experience began in UK but has taken me through Europe, Asia, US, and now Canada
