 Bio

Jason Knight, Scrum Master, Vitals

Jason Knight, Scrum Master, Vitals

My name is Jason Knight, and I love software development. I'm a husband, a father of three precocious kids and have been a developer since 2007. Over the years, I have worked on several products and for many different types of companies from small custom website boutique companies to multi-national companies producing mission-critical applications for fortune 500 companies. I heard about Scrum and agile software development in college but didn't really get it until I actually started practicing Scrum. It just made sense. It made so much sense that it revolutionized my understanding of my own role in the industry. I got a chance to serve as a Scrum Master on several teams and decided that Scrum Mastering, coaching, teaching and writing were the things I wanted to do from then on. Armed with this realization, the nature of my work has changed dramatically. I do less development now than I ever have, but my work teaching Scrum, advocating organizational change, and coaching my colleagues to see the virtue of agile values and principles has energized me in a big way. With the launch of my blog, Semper agilis in mid 2014 I also became a blogger. It's taken me a while to understand the difference between a "guy with a blog" and a blogger but I?m getting there slowly but surely.

 Sessions

Agile Practitioners Panel

Speakers: Jason Knight, Floyd May, Rebecca Cecchini

A panel of experienced practitioners from around Tulsa share their diverse experience in a facilitated discussion including Q&A and other information sharing formats. This session would be open and inviting to others of all levels of experience in applying the values and principles of agility in their workplace. Many have hard questions and very little opportunity to work through their tough issues alongside others outside their company. Additionally, this group would provide ongoing support through personal coaching and local user groups as a way of continuing the learning and growing begun in this session.
