Clemens Lode is the founder of LODE Publishing, established to create a blueprint for heroes. He is the author of the Philosophy for Heroes series and Scrum Your Jira!. His dream is to create a better world by teaching people what it means to be a hero---and how to become a hero in real life. Clemens currently works as a Scrum Coach with startups and larger, established organizations.
Before LODE Publishing, he founded a company dedicated to bringing the power of nature to computers. Its most successful product was Evolution Forge, a program that used evolutionary algorithms to optimize game strategies---a task Google recently took up for its development of artificial intelligence. He has also created cloud systems for medical data.
Clemens is a certified ScrumMaster as well as a certified project management professional with a membership in the PMI Cologne chapter.
Clemens received his Masters in computer science with a focus on Operations Research from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany).
Besides an occasional commentary on philosophy, his social media feed is usually filled with animal pictures. For him, they represent curiosity and a positive attitude about life.
