Get expert advice from a DevOps expert

I’ve worked with a large number of teams who have faced all of these problems, and more. The solutions are usually not complex. It’s usually just a matter of knowing where and how to start. So, reserve your time on my calendar to borrow my brain!

Here’s how it works

We’ll book a 90-minute Zoom call. For that time, my brain is yours for strategizing, bouncing around ideas, or answering any questions you have.

While we can spend the time any way you see fit, a popular approach is to first define the current state of your software development team. Then we can identify your main goals for improvement, and the roadblocks preventing success. Finally, I’ll help you identify one to three concrete steps you can begin immediately, to help your development team start making real progress.

You are also free to record the call for your future reference.

Are you ready?

Development teams are expensive. Even the smallest improvements in efficiency and effectiveness can be worth thousands, or more! Don’t waste another day spinning your wheels.

100% Money-Back Guarantee

I’m so sure that I can provide at least one piece of high-value advice that I offer a 100% money-back guarantee. If, at the end of our call, you feel you have not gotten your money’s worth, just let me know and I’ll refund your payment in full.

Don’t take my word for it

Here’s what others have said:

I most liked the honesty and openness to present concerns about the product we were working with, always questioning how we could do better.
Jonatas Baldin, Cloud Native Engineer, Container Solutions

We came up with good improvements on the process and working together as a team, with the processes being agreed and created by all the team together, not just the management.
Anita Kalmane, Scrum Master, Bugaboo

Jonathan wants to know everything about the project he’s working on so he can give well researched and constructive opinions. He cares about quality and helping others improve.
Jayne Mast, Senior Software Engineer, Confrere

Still have questions?

What happens after I pay?

Your call is scheduled at the time you pay. So after payment is received, we’re all set!

What if I can’t find a suitable time?

If you can’t find a suitable time, due to your time zone, or weekly schedule, just send me an email, and we can arrange something. I try to be as flexible as possible!

Will you sign an NDA before we speak?

No. For an engagement as small as this, it makes little financial sense to get lawyers involved.

I don’t think I need help…

Everyone needs help. Even I constantly seek outside help when working on software development, and team building. It’s just too hard to see the water when you’re swimming in it.

But my situation is different!

In my experience, many aspects of software delivery and team dynamics are more or less universal. The trick is knowing what tactics to deploy when. If your situation is so unusual that tried-and-true principles cannot be applied to it, it could either be an indication of true genius, or pending disaster. In either case, I’ll help you determine if this is the case.

And don’t forget, if I can’t help you, I offer a 100% money-back guarantee.

Can my colleague be on the call, too?

No. This is a 1-on-1 engagement. You are welcome to the conversation to share with your colleagues, or your entire team, after the fact.

If you think your team would benefit from a group engagement, consider my Process Roadmap, or contact me for a custom engagement.

I still have questions!

No problem. Please shoot me an email at jonathan@jhall.io.

Who are you, anyway?

Hi! I’m Jonathan Hall, and 15 years ago a disastrous multi-day technical failure sparked a life-long specialization in improving processes to avoid such needless pain.

Since then, I have worked with many teams on problems big and small, from the highly tactical, like improving coding practices, to the more strategic, like organizational restructuring. And what may be surprising to some is that in my experience, and without exception, my biggest successes have been on the smallest teams.

Much of the DevOps literature out there focuses on hyper-growth companies like Google, Netflix, and Uber, but it is my firm belief that with the right mindset, agile and DevOps principles can be at least as effective—nay, more so—on “tiny” teams.
