Amr Elssamadisy is a software development practitioner who helps his clients build better software that is more valuable to their organizations. Amr and his colleagues at Gemba Systems help both small and large development teams learn new technologies, adopt and adapt appropriate Agile development practices, and focus their efforts to maximize the value they bring to their organizations.
Amr’s technical background and experience (going back to 1994) in C/C++, Java/J2EE, and .NET, allows him to appreciate the problems of and support development teams ‘in the trenches’.
At the same time, he realizes that most problems - even in software - are people problems, and therefore are not solved by tools and technology. Therefore, Amr and his colleagues at Gemba Systems are focused on helping their clients build better software within their organizations. They focus on issues such as personal agility, team-building, communication, feedback, and all of the other soft skills that distinguish excellent teams.
Amr is also the author of Patterns of Agile Practice Adoption: The Technical Cluster, and Agile Adoption Patterns: A Roadmap to Organizational Success, the editor in chief of the Agile Journal, an editor for the AgileQ at InfoQ, and a frequent presenter at software development conferences.
