Amidst all the excitement of our new recruits we are sadly losing one of our old ones!
Web Development Manager, Andy Male leaves us tomorrow after 8 years at the University to join Nokia as a ScrumMaster / Development Manager.
Andy has done an enormous amount for Web Services and the University. He has led some of our most exciting developments and transformed the way we run our projects. Thanks to Andy daily stand-up (no, not the funny kind!), scrum, planning poker and burn-downs have become part of our vocabulary. Unfortunately we've also had to endure the endless golf analogies and the really bad jokes too!
His commitment to making things better is unending and his dedication for doing it right admirable.
We will obviously be very sad to see him go, but on behalf of his colleagues in Web Services, wish him all the best for his future career.
* Title especially for Andy!
