Flavius Stef

Flavius Ștef

With more than 10 years of experience, Flavius is an agile trainer and coach focusing on helping teams deliver faster, better quality software. Flavius blames the computer-related high school and university, plus the economics-oriented master’s degree for his biggest obsessions: product quality and programmer productivity.

Describing his past, Flavius shares: I was bit by the computer bug around age 12, when I first laid hands on a 486. Age 13 caught me reading books about Norton Commander, Windows 3.1 and Pascal, even though I’ve only had my first computer when I was 14.

Talk: The Scrum Master’s toolbox
