Keith KirkhopeHi, I’m Keith and I’m an Engineering Manager and squad lead of the Content Platform squad at Skyscanner’s Glasgow offic. Outside of solving problems at work you’ll find me falling off my mountain bike around Scotland, trying to get some attention from one of my two cats or planning holidays with my wife. I find building the correct software solution in the best way is often not a technical problem but a people one.

Gary FlemingGary is an agile provocateur, software nomad, and lean mercenary. His main hobby is to try and help companies to build better software in better ways. Sometimes this is by helping them with the messy human communication side of agile, and sometimes it's through teaching better software crafting practices - but it's usually at least some of each. Coaching, mentoring, writing, and showing; whatever helps in the context. You'll find him at various local meetups trying to both share what he knows and learn from his peers.
