About Our Trainers:

Ivan Biddles is a CSM and CSD with over 30 years experience as a dedicated, detail-oriented technology leader with mastery managing projects and teams as well as hands-on implementation of the latest technologies for web and mobile application development on diverse platforms.

He has successfully utilized and implemented Agile and Scrum methodologies during his many years of experience at the CTO/VP/Director level as well as in Software, Solutions and Enterprise Architecture, and hands-on design and development.

He has worked in start-up companies as well as Fortune 500 companies like IBM, Toyota, Westinghouse, Allstate, Dean-Witter Discover, Bell South, Singer, and General Motors. He used many of the agile concepts – such as self-organized, dedicated teams; test-driven and incremental development; and short, releasable cycles (sprints) –  in the late 80s and early 90s, even before those concepts were formalized.

As a principal developer, Ivan programmed commercial and military flight simulators and even contributed code to the NASA Space Shuttle landing simulator. He was a key member of the IBM OS/2 development team, owning and programming some of the foundational components which were later used by Microsoft as the basis of Windows NT.
