Ramon De La Fuente
What skills would one look for in a coach? Development experience? Check.
Project experience? Check. Able to communicate? Check.
We've known Ramon for what seems like ages already, and last year he attended WeCamp.
Ramon is known as a skilled developer as well as a good businessman, with an eye for not just
the code but also the people. We are happy and proud to have Ramon on board as a coach for
easy-going or hard to communicate with, Petra can do it.
Petra is a problem solver, where "problem" is used in the widest sense of the word. She is
equally skilled in solving architecture problems as she is in people problems.
Combine this with running her own company doing a lot of projects, even at the same time, and
you'll be sure to learn a lot from her during WeCamp.
Set Stefan free on your codebase and he'll do what users do: The unexpected. He'll
find bugs and fix em. While he runs his own company, and WeCamp.
Stefan has surprised many a developer by doing that which the developer did not envision, exposing
bugs by thinking out of the box. He is also one of the founders of Ingewikkeld and
WeCamp. Last year he knew the hammock well, this year he'll be in action: One of the teams
will have Stefan coach them.
How about running the premier PHP magazine in the world, and combining that with
organizing multiple conferences a year. Crazy? Or Eli?
Eli is our Coach That Comes From Far. Hailing from the USA, he will fly over to help a team
bring out their inner talent. He is able to effectively employ an epic amount of organisational
skills. Anything from running a magazine to organising a conference, including finding talented
authors and speakers.
Look at that code. It's a challen... no, it's actually just a problem. Luckily, Richard
is here. He can explain it to you, and you'll understand.
Anyone who has worked with Richard on a project will recognize it when we say he knows how to
explain and bring structure. Whether he is working on the usergroup he's involved in or working
for Enrise, whether you're a co-worker, external developer or customer: You always learn from
Coach of coaches
Sometimes you need to step back and see the bigger view. While our coaches are busy, having someone that keeps that bigger view is useful.
Last year Jeremy was a coach, and given his background in both tech and psychology, we decided to invite
him back as a coach of coaches. Someone that can assist this years coaches in their work, make connections
and ensure that both coaches and attendees maximize their teaching and learning.
