Thanou was introduced to Agile in the summer of 2000, and quickly embraced it as a great way to meet clients’ needs more easily. More personally, he saw how it could help him become a more productive developer and a better communicator. It must have had some effect, as he has since created and facilitates a full-day Agile workshop for all new developers at Intelliware Development Inc. (where he also works as a senior developer).
Outside of the Agile world, his passions include helping children through the education charity he co-founded–Jai Dee Children’s Fund–and helping the environment, as both a High Park steward and as lead for Intelliware’s “Green Team.”
He’s currently studying Chinese language at Zhejiang University.
