A Chat with Rowan Bunning
Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at 5:30 PM (AWST)
In place of the Feb meeting of the Perth .NET user group we are having an informal session with Rowan Bunning, a Certified Scrum Trainer and a pioneer of Scrum in Australasia. This session will be run in conjunction with ALT.NET, given the wider applicability of the topic. Apologies for the short notice.
This informal session is being held at '43 Below' (used to be "The Bar on Barrack'). This is a smaller venue than Excom, so could anyone who is going to attend please send Mitch a confirmation email.
DATE: Wednesday, 27th Jan, 5:30pm
VENUE: 43 Below Bar & Restaurant, Function Room, 43 Barrack Street, Perth
COST: Free. All welcome.
With a background in web design, object-oriented development, eXtreme Programming and Scrum, Rowan became Australia's first Certified ScrumMaster and first Certified Scrum Practitioner before becoming the first Australian Certified Scrum Trainer. He has built extensive experience leading, coaching, and training organisations in Scrum across Australasia and Europe, including European Scrum leader EMC Consulting (formerly Conchango).
Rowan is highly active in the Agile community internationally and has spoken at several conferences in Europe and North America including Scrum Gatherings in 2007 (London) and 2009 (Munich). In Australia, Rowan founded a successful Agile special interest group supported by the Australian Computer Society and helped to initiate Scrum User Groups in Sydney and Brisbane. Rowan holds a Bachelors degree in Information Technology, is a PRINCE2 Practitioner and is Cognitive Edge accredited.
