Project rescue

So your critical project hasn't quite gone according to plan? Or you're starting a new one and would like to avoid past mistakes? Could some coaching and mentoring on all things software help motivate your teams?

Please get in contact via Twitter or email. I'll be happy to help.

About me

My name is Andrew Harcourt.

I'm a software engineer and project rescue specialist. I'm a Principal Consultant and Market Tech Principal at ThoughtWorks, a co-founder at Stack Mechanics and in my spare time (ha!) I also run my own photography business, Ivory Digital.


I'm a solutions architect and software engineer with extensive experience in large-scale, high-load, geographically-distributed systems. I specialise in project rescue, governance and development methodologies.

My main areas of interest are domain-driven design, event sourcing, massively-scalable service architectures and cloud computing.

I'm a regular speaker and presenter at conferences and training events. My mother wrote COBOL on punch cards and I've been coding in one form or another since I was five years old.


Cyclist. Photographer. Ballroom dancer. Motorcyclist. I love my outdoor sports - and anyone who won't dance is chicken.
