In my previous post I announced the start of my dream: building my own game. In this post I will elaborate further about the goal I have set and how I intent to reach that goal.

And it also gives me the chance to show you how awesome it is to be creating software at Zilverline. As a Scrum Master, be more pro-active pursuing (solving) impediments for the team.
