About Dave

Hi, I'm Dave Rooney!

I'm a veteran software developer and Agile Coach with over 25 years industry experience. I've been involved with Agile Software Development approaches since 2000, and have helped organizations from pre-funding startups to the Fortune 15 improve their software delivery process. I'm an active writer and blogger, with many published articles for the Cutter Consortium, a DZone MVB, and a member of the editorial board for the Agile Record. I'm also a frequent speaker on Agile methods, presenting at conferences such as Agile 2010, Agile Coach Camp Canada 2010, Agile Coach Camp Canada 2011, SFAgile 2011, AgileDC 2011, Agile India 2012, and the DPI Professional Development Weeks in 2004 and 2005.
