SPaMCAST 526 features an interview with Freddie Clark.  Mr. Clark is a tester and Scrum Master by day and video game entrepreneur in the evening.  We had an in-depth conversation about using Scrum and other agile techniques in a lean startup environment.  It is not the same as the standard corporate environment.

Freddie’s Bio

Freddie hails from Cleveland, Ohio where he discovered an enthusiasm for games at an early age. When he was not forced to play outside, he was enjoying co-op games with his friends at home. This excitement led him to earn a degree in Game Design and Development at Rochester Institute of Technology. During his college career, Freddie found a passion for the production process, which he fostered through various experiences in this industry. More recently, Freddie has been exploring the world of Agile and independent game development, which he is using as he oversees the production and design of his new independent game studio, Misfitmakers.
