Vince Ryan is an agile consultant and trainer with a particular interest in Software Quality Assurance and a passion for providing teams with the necessary tools to get Quality into the delivery process as early as possible. An Agile champion since 2003, Vince is an advocate of XP practices such as Test-driven development and Pair programming.
Vince has worked for a number of prestigious firms within the financial, digital media, telecommunications, retail and manufacturing sectors and recently spent 16 months providing agile coaching to the team which won the UK’s 2013 Agile Awards for “Best Agile Team”.
