Biography

Padraig Brennan ,yes thats me. I am fascinated by the entire spectrum of Software Development, and strive to improve teams where ever I work. I am passionate about agile methodologies as they encompass most of what is great about software development. I have worked in a variety of roles, enjoying all of those, from managing a department of 20 people, to developer , architect and project manager. I have worked with Agile since 2001, mainly XP and Scrum. Previously I had developed projects mainly in  C++. I  ran an agile rollout in Ericsson OSS. This is quite a challenge as it comprises about 500 developers in a number of locations, more recently I have lead a Scrum Adoption across distributed team in HP. Currently building an system using Agile concepts.
