"15 min of TDD" at Swedish Enforcement.

Professional developer since 1980

The harder the problems, the louder they call.

You always need a truly senior developer like me in a team. Being senior not only means to write stable and maintainable code but also, have an eye on how the team works. Is it a team or just a group of individuals? Therefore, apart from 40+ years of programming, I also have acquired skills such as facilitation and agile principles.

But let us not stop there, a team must also understand the "why" behind their work. With me in the team, product management has a speaking partner that understands their context.

Certified Product Owner, Certified Scrum Developer, Certified Scrum Master, Certified IT-Architect, Certified Java Programmer.


Full stack developer, including cloud technologies, leading agile teams, software architecture.

Since 2007, I have typically worked as a team facilitator (Scrum Master) in combination with a developer role. Sometimes the former has been full time when I have had more than one team. At other times, the developer role has been the heaviest part.

I feel passionate about both team development and software craftsmanship.
