“Less talk, more rock” are words Joel Tosi likes to live by. Instead of telling teams what to do, he prefers to pair with organizations and teams to create meaningful products. Whether working with product owners on product learning, testing teams trying to balance automation, or developers and operations teams interested in continuous delivery, Joel enjoys rolling up his sleeves to work with the teams. Sharing his experiences as a coach, architect, developer, and manager, he is a hands-on collaborator and community builder. A consultant with DevJam, Joel brings this perspective and an understanding of the social aspects of software to help facilitate team and product growth. Joel infrequently blogs at communalosmosis.com and tweets @joeltosi.
In the rush to build more, faster, many companies spend more time on environment maintenance and less time on actual product learning and validation. Joel Tosi argues that instead of rushing into automation and virtualization, start by rethinking your approaches to your environments and testing.
