Joakim Karlsson, BluePlane, Sweden
Joakim has over ten years of experience as software developer and manager for software teams. He has spent most of that time working with larger organizations. That has given him experience of the problems and opportunities that introducing change in that kind of environment presents.
Joakim works as part of Blueplane with helping teams improve their development techniques and ability to produce quality software that meets the need of all stakeholders. This includes coaching teams in design techniques, using tools as test-driven development, as well as helping teams learn how to communicate in a more effective manner.
His goal is to recreate the feeling you have when you're part of a project that works. When the team is buzzing with activity. When all stakeholders pull in the same direction. When you use what you learn about the product, and about the working methods you use, in your quest to constantly improve. When you're, quite simply, having fun.
