Karl Scotland, Conchango
Karl is a versatile software practitioner with a wide range of skills, including development, project management, team leadership, coaching and training. He has worked on domains including multimedia, neural network, interactive TV, billing and the web, and has experienced both a complete lack of process, and an overly rigorous one. When he discovered XP, and was given the opportunity to use it, he embraced it enthusiastically, and has never looked back. Karl is currently an Agile Coach with Conchango. Previously, he has been an Engineering Program Manager with Yahoo! Europe, championing agile software development within the London office, and he spent 5 years with BBC Interactive, leading a team that developed software which delivered 78 services in 12 months, a feat which could not have been achieved without agility.
