As an Agile activist, I believe our goal is to work together to grow our knowledge of lean and agile principles in support of innovation and team work allowing for business and talent to work together towards a common goal… customer satisfaction.
I started off my career in software development then pursued project management then into Agile Product Development in the IT space. Since then I’ve been applying my experience and knowledge at work and in my personal ventures.
I’m passionate about people, the workplace, and being innovative. Continuous improvement is endless. Come to Agile Open San Diego to continue improving!

Woody Zuill - Organizer Emeritus
Woody has been training, facilitating, and coaching teams in the adoption of the Agile approach for over 10 years in some form or another, and he takes every chance he gets to speak at conferences, code camps, and user groups on Agile/Lean practices, especially regarding TDD, technical excellence, code excellence, and pair programming. He strives to continually learn, experiment, practice, and "inspect and adapt". Woody's mantra is "Engage and See" in the traditional Napoleonic sense, but without a disastrous winter campaign in Russia.
