About Bas Vodde

Bas currently lives in Singapore where he ended up after living in Holland (born), China and Finland. He worked in a couple of start-ups in Holland, after which he, in 2001, had enough of the "normal life" and moved to China and started working for Nokia. In Nokia, he worked on large and traditional projects. This uncomfortable experience convinced him that agile and lean development is a more human way of developing software products -- no matter how large your development is.

He had the opportunity to introduce Agile Development (particularly Scrum) in Nokia Networks (later Nokia Siemens Networks) but had to move to Helsinki. There he watched dozens of product groups adopt scrum and other agile practices. The extreme cold in Finland forced him to migrate south and back to China where he focused on one large product group and its Scrum adoption.

Bas is interested in Scrum with a special focus on large companies and large product development. But he also enjoyed working on technical practices, especially test-driven development (especially in embedded environments) and continuous integration. He keeps working as a developer because he strongly believes you need a well-factored code base if you want to be fast and flexible. His hobbies are studies in lean production and quality management and, of course, programming.

He is also one of the authors of the CppUTest unit test framework for C/C++ and of Osaka a Mac UI automation framework written in Ruby.
