Biography

Christian Beck, grown up in Lower Saxony near the southern border to Hamburg, Germany, married, 2 Kids. I studied in Hannover (Electrical Engineering) and I work in the fields of embedded SW development and project management since 1996. Outside my work life I enjoy being a dad and you may see me playing around with remote controlled helicopters, play piano, guitar, blues harp or doing sports, like Spinning and Bodypump.

Looking forward to SCRUM around!
