Tuesday night, Ryerson University held its annual Computer Science Awards Ceremony at the Thomas Lounge in Oakham House. Among the eleven awards presented, recent Intelliware co-op student, Greg Leaver, was selected by the university as the 2012 Toronto Agile Community Award recipient. To be considered for the award, a student must a) be enrolled full-time in the Computer Science program; b) have an interest in Agile development; and c) have a suitable GPA. Lawrence Ludlow and Brian Murphy of The Toronto Agile Community were on hand to present the award.
As part of a three year commitment to Ryerson’s Computer Science department, The Toronto Agile Community Award was established by the Toronto Agile Community as a way to thank Ryerson University for so kindly allowing the not for profit organization to host their XP Toronto events on campus. The Toronto Agile Community is run solely by volunteers and aims to grow Agile development practices among local businesses.
“During Greg’s time at Intelliware, I was fortunate enough to have worked with him. When Ryerson called to let me know they had selected the award recipient, I couldn’t have been more pleased to hear it was someone that had spent his co-op placement with Intelliware,” said Lawrence Ludlow, TAC member and Director, Process at Intelliware Development Inc. During his time at Intelliware, Greg worked on a number of teams, including a food traceability project and an e-Health project.
