Gagan Kaur has been a software engineer at VMware Tanzu Labs (formerly Pivotal Labs) in London for five years. She has transformed client teams across various industries including retail, heath-care and automotive by leading workshops, pair programming on building software and teaching agile practices. She is passionate about cross discipline collaboration and making sure things are being done for the right reason. She also enjoys teaching in other ways including mentoring newer software engineers and running the Intro to Spring Boot workshop in 2021. When not working on software, Gagan is reading books, taking photos and sporadically trying out way too many hobbies in her quest to be constantly learning new things.
