Hey, I'm Brian Button. I've been in the agile world since the end of 1999/start of 2000, with Object Mentor originally. Since then I've been in just about every role possible in the agile world, today when I'm leading the agile transformation for one of the Fortune 50 in the US.
I've been very active in the community, starting with being one of the track chairs for XP Universe in 2001, track chair and program chair for Agile20xx, conference chair of Agile2016, and conference chair for Agile Alliance Tech Conference 2017. I was one of the original founders of XPSTL, the first XP user group in St. Louis, frequent speaker and trainer around town, have written an article or two, used to blog a lot, and speak at the occasional conference.
While I live across the entire agile spectrum, my first love is definitely developing. I love writing code, exploring TDD, and teaching TDD to others.
Now I spend most of my time guiding a very large agile transformation in the health care world, and loving every minute of it!
