Moving Developers from Good to Great

I'm Charles Weir. I'm passionate about making software development more productive, more reliable and more fun.

Working as a consultant, mentor and technical lead, I've helped more than a hundred project teams do just that; they tell me my engaging approach and positive drive deliver team agreement, technical change, and improved processes.

In a world where most experts treat programmers – and even end users – as part of the problem, our work at Security Lancaster has highlighted a unique approach to make software security inexpensive, easy, and even fun.

I'm keen to work with others who want inexpensive software security. Please call me at the number below or email me. Or take a look at the blog entries and Twitter comments below, or meet me at the events listed here on this site.
