My name is Samuel Ranzato, Software Architect and Infrastructure Consultant in the Netherlands. I mainly design, advice, coach in Microsoft technology dominated environments. My career began as a software engineer then lead developer, team lead, designer and technical projectlead. As a developer I promoted XP in the companies I worked at, mainly because I thought it brought the joy of developing software back from being only a code monkey. The last 2 years, I am trying to make the development process more fun and productive. In my opinion, this is where Scrum comes in. Well, I took the first step and got my CSM. Next will probably be a CPO, CSP while attending good courses on user stories, estimating, agile coaching.
