hands-on labs and textbook.”- TF,
- “I can vouch for Jan’s knowledge of Agile software development
and project management practices, as well as his professional
presentation skills and ability to accommodate a diverse and demanding

skeptical of Scrum. His typical approach effectively blended
questions, examples from his own experiences as a hands-on developer
and short, sometimes impromptu, tutorials on Scrum to enable teams to
