We are veterans in the software industry; we grew up with waterfall but now believe wholeheartedly in Agile and use Agilebuddy for all our software development projects.

Ahsan Ziauddin’s passion for computers originated with the Commodore 64, in the dark days of the pre-internet world: since then he’s been more or less obsessed with computing. His career began at Tucows Inc. where he worked on developing software to manage email data migrations. After gettng a taste of web development whilst working on a J2EE webmail app, his interest in dynamic programming languages led him to rapid web application development with Ruby on Rails. When he’s not debating programming language design or development methodologies with colleagues, he spends his time reading fiction and listening to more experimental noise than he knows what to do with. He holds an Honors Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering from the University of Toronto.
