My name is Jan Sabbe, a freelance software architect with experience in agile methodologies and in a variety of technologies. I have practical knowledge of .Net, Java, web development and native iOS development. I often take on the role of lead developer and architect. My coaching approach consists of leading by example, sharing observations and active listening. I value mixed scrum teams, open communication and delivering real business value.
