Abby Fichtner (@HackerChick) produces The Hacker Chick Blog, co-organizes Boston's Lean Startup Circle, and is Microsoft's Evangelist for Startups, where she has the most awesome job of helping startups as they build out the next generation of software.
Abby's own background has been split between banging out code at startups and coaching teams on how to improve how they develop software through lean & agile techniques.
Abby has given workshops on Agile and Lean Startup for MIT, TechStars, and has presented on a number of agile topics - including how Lean Startup is pushing Agile development to the next level at the Agile 20XX and Agile Development Practices conferences.
