He is a Certified Scrum Practitioner and Professional Scrum Developer Trainer, runs the Sydney Alt.Net user group and (formerly) the Talking Shop Down Under podcast, owns and contributes to a few open source projects and has spoken at Tech.Ed, Ignite, and a number of other events and user groups around Australia.
