Biography

I did Masters in Computer Science from University Of Edinburgh and working as a Senior Computer Engineer in a Financial Company in UK. I have more than 7 years of experience in Java, J2EE technology and have three Java Certifications (SCJP, SCBCD and SCWCD).

I attended the Scrum Master Training and got certified by Scrum Alliance. I had the basic idea of Scrum before attending the training as we follow Scrum here in our project. The certification course was really helpful in extending my knowledge in the area.

I have been using Scrum for almost 4 years now. The project I am working is a full life cycle development project and we have distributed Development and Testing Team. We follow Scrum Planning, Daliy Scrum meeting, Scrum Retrospective and other basic Scrum methodologies for last few years. I was familiar with product Backlog, Sprint backlog, Burntdown chart before my CSM training itself, so the training and the certification exam made my understanding very clear.
