“Emily’s talks on Clean Code gave us a big push towards Software Craftsmanship. Her lightning talks followed by provoking questions stirred up many interesting discussions."

Arnulf Krokeide, Software Architect, Confirmit, Oslo

"I had the great pleasure to assist Emily to arrange JDojo@Gbg Coding Dojo meetings. She's an excellent facilitator, perfectly balancing the level of tutoring and stepping back to let the participants "learn by doing". 

Fredrik Wendt, co-organizer of JDojo@Gbg

“When I have been asking about feedback around this Coding Dojo course, people are very satisfied. They think that everyone in the house should have to take it. Really valuable.”

Martin Andersson, Manager, Software Engineering at Jeppesen

I brought in Emily to work with the team on issues around Clean Code, Test Driven Development and Refactoring. Her presentation of the material was always very professional and the structure of the sessions allowed for a lot of interaction and reflection. The feedback from the participants has always been very positive.

Isak Styf, Software Team Leader at Markem-Imaje

I liked "The Coding Dojo Handbook" a lot. It was not too long, very to the point and practical.

Bache Consulting

Emily Bache Consulting - Agile Testing & DevelopmentHi, my name is Emily Bache, specialist in automated testing and agile engineering practices at Bache Consulting, based in Göteborg, Sweden.

With a team of developers I like to start with an inspirational whole day workshop, discussing what agile means for programmers, and the kinds of technical practices you need to introduce. We often follow this with a series of Coding Dojo meetings where we learn skills like Test Driven Development and Refactoring.

I also offer seminars and coaching on topics such as Behaviour Driven Development and Agility with Legacy Code. What I teach is based on many years experience working as a programmer in a wide variety of organizations from large corporation to small startup. I have also published a book "The Coding Dojo Handbook", and a video course with Pluralsight "Coding Dojo: Test Driven Development".

I can help you as an individual or team of developers become more confident to handle changing requirements, meet your commitments, and produce quality software. I am generally available for training or consulting, please get in touch via the contact form.
