Chief Craftsman at Scrum.org tapped to improve Microsoft’s Visual Studio product line

Scrum.org News - Tue, 07/31/2012 - 13:58

Scrum.org announced today that its Chief Craftsman, David Starr, will soon be joining Microsoft as Senior Program Manager in Visual Studio ALM. 

Since joining Scrum.org in 2011, David has driven significant improvements in all of Scrum.org’s programs, and has dedicated himself to helping teams around the world improve their software development. David is leaving his post as Chief Craftsman for Scrum.org to help Microsoft continue improving Visual Studio to support agile software development practices.

In discussing his new role David said, “There is a saying that the tool sets the rules. As unfortunate as that statement is, it is true for many organizations who don’t yet value people over process and process over tools. I look forward to delivering products that encourage good agile practices with a focus on better people interactions and higher quality software. Creating features for a product that is used by millions of software developers is humbling.”

"It is with mixed emotions that we bid David farewell," said Alex Armstrong, Scrum.org's co-founder and VP of Business Development. "David has made incredible contributions through his work at Scrum.org, and we will miss him at each and every Daily Scrum. As part of the Scrum.org team, David has been directly helping to improve the profession of software development. We are excited that he will be able to continue to do so with a company as central in the software development universe as Microsoft," Armstrong continued.

“I have been privileged to work with the thought leaders at Scrum.org. The Professional Scrum Trainers and others in the Scrum community are some of the most committed and talented people contributing to our craft,” said Starr.

“I will miss my interactions, heated discussions, and finally resolutions with David.,” said Scrum.org founder Ken Schwaber. David drives integrity, and that is essential to Scrum.org’s mission and to the well-being of our profession.

Asked about the significance of Microsoft’s choice, Armstrong summarized, ”By bringing a Scrum practitioner with David's unique mix of talents into a leadership role on its flagship ALM product, Microsoft is clearly telegraphing its commitment to supporting Agile and Scrum teams. Agile’s influence in software development has been increasing steadily over the past decade, and this seems to be a clear demonstration of the trend continuing.”
