About the Authors

Markus Wissekal
Markus Wissekal

I started working in IT in 1999. My journey to become agile began as the technical lead of a start-up in 2002. 

Skip ahead 5 years I finished my masters in medical computer sciences, 

when I became more interested in creating effective teams than software. 

Nowadays I've broadened my skills to also coach departments in an enterprise environment. 

I'm a part of agile rescue, a losely coupled network of agile experts spread throughout europe.

I love sharing my experiences - especially, but not limited to  agile topics that are dear to my heart. You probably won't have to keep that in mind, when ever you should meet me at a conference ;-)
