Alan  O'Callaghan is an experienced Scrum Product Owner and ScrumMaster, Agile transformation consultant, Scrum coach and software architect who works with large corporations and start-ups alike, helping them to gain Agile fluency. Like many in the Agile community Alan's roots are in object-oriented programming, software and systems architecture and the Patterns Movement. It was through an active interest in Jim Coplien's organizational patterns that he first came across Scrum (as a pattern language)at the OOPSLA convention in 1998 after which Scrum gradually took over more and more of his professional life. Described as having a "laid back charm" he nevertheless generates enthusiasm and energy in the Teams he works with. Alan is an active member of the Scrum patterns community.
