Michael Feathers

Sponsored by

Director, R7K Research & Conveyance

Over the years, I’ve spent a significant amount of time helping teams gain control over large code bases in C, C++, C#, Java, and Ruby. I was involved in the early Agile movement and one of my passions is helping organizations recognize the impact of their internal organization and communication on the long term viability of their software products – putting interactions in place to prevent the accumulation of technical debt and lost business opportunities.

Portia-Uke-Small

Portia Tung

Executive Agile Coach & Executive and Personal Coach

I’m an Executive and Business Agile coach, personal coach, storyteller and wishmaker. I combine play with business strategies and personal goals to bring about positive change. My pursuit to help people realise more of their potential has led to the pleasant yet all together unexpected discovery that play is essential for the lifelong development of adults and not only children. My practice-based research on play has led me to live a more playful life, so much so that I have managed to dream The School of Play into existence.
