Hi! I'm Peter, and I am passionate about agile, human resources and company culture. I coach, fix and also getting fixed. Failure is my daily bread and I'm not ashamed of it. Because as Michael Jordan said "I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. But I cannot accept not trying."

BIO
Once you start facing fear, every day a little bit, it starts dying, and you start growing. And suddenly, you become addicted to that growth. Sasha Daygame
Agile & Scrum Coach
Heureka.cz
2014 - Present

There was once this opportunity. So I took it. And temporary solution has become permanent. I left the code to the better programmers, so I could develop my strenghts. I started as Scrum Master for one team, then we added next one. Eventually I become a "Agile Coach", what basically means that I currently work with Scrum Master's to develop their skills, watch over the process from global perspective and still solve people's problems. But my responsibility goes far beyond that. I'm interested in human resources, I hire developers to appropriately complement our teams and I see company culture as something, that we should never underestimate.

Software Developer
Heureka.cz
2013 - 2014

First fully code oriented full-time job. I used to be a Front-end developer so I wrote a lot of HTML, CSS, Javascript but also PHP code. I loved it, but you sometimes simply know, that this is something you don't want to do for the rest of your life. I was probably too extroverted person. Heureka was already agile company when I started, and that was also the time when I fell in love with it.

Process Analyst, Consultant, BPM Developer
IBM
2012 - 2013

My first serious career stage, which allowed me to peek into the corporate world. I wrote a lot of Javascript, created many process diagrams and seek for opportunities to optimize the flow. I'm greatful for this experience, it gave me comparison and solid foundations to build on later in my career.

daily used buzzwords: #bpm, #process, #javascript, #dojo, #optimalization

EXPERIENCE
If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative. Woody Allen
Title: The development of product or how we killed agile
Language: EN/CZ

Perex: 4.2 of Agile Fundamentals has died due to poor implementation and approach in practice. Rapidly interpreted thoughts and opinions on the Agile view of individual members of a development team. Differing as well as consistent opinions on Agile practice in a technology company.

Title: Workshop: Agile Estimating and Planning
Language: EN/CZ

Perex: One of the most important aspects of agile development training is estimating and planning. Yes, these are important, even for agile software development. Although agile is a fluid and iterative process, that doesn't mean that planning doesn't have a place in its programming and project management.
