Mike has worked on several projects over the last three years, stepping into each of the Scrum roles as needed:

  1. Coach and Developer on PLHIV
  2. Product Owner on HobbyWorks
  3. Scrummaster/Coach/Developer on CPM

Currently, Mike works with several modern web technologies including grails, django and coldfusion.  Using rapid development platforms helps to enable the quick turn-around required in Scrum.  Additionally adding things like selenium for testing and jenkins for continuous integration helps to encourage the agile spirit on his development teams.
