Agile Talks #13


Agile Talks wants to bring together people who are passionate about software development and agile methods.

We will have two talks of maximum 30 minutes and after that two Open Space slots for around one hours.

The event ends with a group retrospective and with some conclusions from the participants.

Agile Talks is a great opportunity to both learn from other people's experiences and discuss your own topics during the Open Space.

First Talk: Alexandra Draghici - "Switching from Scrum to Kanban". We've been following the Scrum methodology for about 4 years within our company. Recently, one of our two business units has made the switch to Kanban, which in retrospect has been a much welcome change, helping with team morale and efficiency. This talk deals with reasons to pick one methodology or the other, seen as a natural response to the challenges with which your team is faced.

Alexandra is a Product Manager at 123FormBuilder, currently focusing on the Enterprise clients portfolio.

Second Talk: Mike Dolha - "Design Thinking Crash Course". This talk focuses on the basics of Design Thinking. We will embark on a journey that wishes to find out as much as possible about the core components and ideologies used. A little bit about its history and why it came to be; why it’s important and how it connects with the Agile landscape. We will also explore some of the pros and cons of using Design Thinking, when to use and if it’s the right tool for you to use at all. The talk will be in English and will make use of memes

My name is Mike Dolha, I’m 26 and I work as a Programmer at Nagarro. I have roughly 5 years of experience as a Software Developer and University Teaching Assistant. I’m passionate about web technologies, decentralization and software architecture. Other things I dabble in are bodybuilding, music, transhumanism and chiptunes.
