Sam Newman

'm an independent consultant based in London, working with clients all over the world. I work in the cloud and continuous delivery space, more recently focusing on the use of microservice architectures. Things I've Done After 12 years working at ThoughtWorks, I have taken the plunge and am now working as an independent consultant and speaker. Along with Andy Yates I also created the Lego XP Game many years ago, a game designed to teach the basics of Agile in a workshop form. This has been run hundreds if not thousands of times around the world. I played a part in creating DBDeploy, one of the first open source database refactoring tools, and helped create the first AWS training workshops too. I was also fortunate enough to be around just as the ideas behind Continuous Delivery were taking shape, and like to think I played a small part in its development. More recently writing has become a bigger part of my work. You may be interested in the small ebook Lightweight Systems for Realtime Monitoring, or the full-sized Building Microservices, both published by O'Reilly.
