Welcome to the official site of GeePaw.

Hi! I’m GeePaw Hill, a writer, trainer, coach, speaker, and above all, hard-core computer geek steeped in the tradition we now call agile software development. My mission is to help organizations that rely on “makers making”. If your team wants to ship more value faster, you’ve come to the right place. Here you’ll find my videos, articles, and blogs. If you have questions or comments, or you want to talk about how I can help your team, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

What does GeePaw do?


I am an experienced public speaker and have delivered keynotes to crowds ranging from dozens to hundreds. Contact me about speaking at your event today.


Starting in 2019, I will be offering limited-access remote workshops. The workshops are live broadcast with screen sharing and participatory problem solving.


In my thirty year career as a professional software development coach, I have worked with both tiny startups and humongous corporations alike.


On the Blog you can find weekly articles in both the technical and philosophical areas of programming, coaching, and the world of agile software development.

UDispatch #4: Stand-In Plugins

The next amazing layer, now that we’ll have plugin architectures worked out, is to use plugins as stand-ins — very lightweight simulators — of the upstream behavior. A "stand-in" is...
