Adeel has been working with software development teams for over 20 years, leading and architecting highly scalable solutions for the enterprise. For the last 7 years, he has found his interest in coaching technical teams and helping them build great products.
He benefitted from working with great mentors at the start of his career; some of them early adopters of XP (Extreme Programming) practices. That experience proved to be highly inspirational and he has been learning and teaching it ever since. Lean startups have been a great inspiration for him as well. He feels there is no better way to learn product ownership than building your own product. Owning his own startup helped him develop Lean software development skills with a strong focus on visualizing flow, eliminating waste and building feedback loops.
Adeel is a strong proponent of building a DevOps culture in organizations. His background in both Lean & XP practices helps him accelerate as a DevOps transformation specialist for product teams. He loves working with teams on automating infrastructure for continuous deployment and delivery. Having years of experience building highly distributed cloud-based applications helps him coach teams through their cloud adoption journey. He has assisted numerous organizations transform their DevOps culture such as American Airlines, JP Morgan Chase, and Ford Motor Company.
Adeel lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife and children. Adeel is extremely passionate about improving people’s lives through technology education, especially in developing countries. He contributes by running online classes and coaching programs for underprivileged students in his hometown in Pakistan and is extremely proud of their achievements.
