Bio for Carlo Kruger

Starting off in risk management for a financial services provider, at
some point Carlo realised he was spending more time involved in
software development than managing financial risk, and that it was
more fun. Since then he has been actively involved in software
development for the past five years. Certified as a ScrumMaster in
2008 he'd like to see Scrum more widely accepted in South African IT.
He currently works for Saratoga Software where he is involved in a
number of projects. Carlo is a member of the SUGSA team.

Bio for Chris Tisdall

Chris has a background in marketing and has been involved in e-
commerce and start-ups since the late 90's - both as a consultant and
business owner. He managed to weather the bursting of the dot-com
bubble and has worked across the financial services,
telecommunications and retail industries. He was part of the core team
that launched 20twenty as SA's first pure-play internet bank and
currently heads up Allan Gray's online channel. Chris has learnt
technology through osmosis by working with amazing technology teams.
He is fascinated by the possibilities of the web and the creative
genius that is simplifying the lives of everyday people.
