Jon Fazzaro

Senior Consultant

Fort Wayne, Indiana - USA

Jon is a Full-Stack Agile Coach, and has been in software development for over 20 years. His professional mission is to help people unlearn the hidden habits of Taylorism and adopt the modern skills and behaviors that will unlock their success.

You wouldn’t know it to look at him now, but coding used to be a drag for Jon. It wasn’t until he began using practices like ensemble programming, test-driven development, and daily collaboration with users and business people that it came to life for him. Software is for humans on both ends, no matter how much we try to separate them with process and documentation. Connecting these ends to help teams ship better and sooner is Jon’s whole thing.

With most of his time spent in consulting, Jon has worked with companies in a broad range of industries:

  • Automotive
  • Manufacturing
  • Healthcare
  • Intermodal Transportation
  • Home Improvement Retail
  • Architecture & Engineering
  • Education
  • Apparel
  • Fire Detection

His focus has been on helping these teams (and companies) improve the quality and predictability of their software engineering from the code outward. He is an expert in introducing people to modern software techniques like microtesting, CI/CD, and taming legacy code.

To complement his technical approach, he is also a strong proponent of Lean Product Management and Systems Thinking.

Jon has been a regular speaker at software conferences in the midwest United States since 2015. For a healthy close-up of his current professional thinking, check out his talk “Oh! The Humanity”.

In his copious spare moments, Jon has also managed to lead a course on (what else?) Modern Agile Software Development at Purdue University, to write and record a few albums as a rock multi-instrumentalist, and to be happy and make tomorrow easier with his beautiful family in Indiana.
