About Helen Abell

Picture of Helen Abell

I believe that happy developers create better products, which create happier customers and ultimately more profitable software companies.  In that order. It’s a win win situation.

I’m the CEO and Founder of Chaos On Toast, a software consultancy dedicated to helping software companies manage their legacy code and technical debt, which, as I’m sure you know is one of the major causes of dissatisfaction for software engineers.

I’ve worked in the software industry for 30 years now, and seen it all.  I have managed development teams and worked with many software companies in all these scenarios.

I know how it feels to be under pressure to deliver, staying up all night to ensure a software release goes well for customers and playing whack-a-mole with bugs following a rushed release, I understand why it happens, I’ve been there.  Balancing the business priorities between ensuring future development won’t be compromised and getting the next release out now is a problem common to all software companies. But it doesn’t have to be this way, at least not all the time!
