Agile Talks #2


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: Ana Ghenciu - "Mindmapping" . Mind mapping is a powerful and creative tool for managing projects, visualising milestones and objectives, and keeping everyone on the same page. The creativity comes from the fact that they are very visually oriented and it's actually easier for our brain to process the information in a visual manner than on a linear / sequential manner. You can use a mind map to list objectives of the project, and keep them close at hand throughout the project to help you stay focused on its outcome. And they can be very fun to build too, since you can include lots of interesting images and colors

Ana Ghenciu has the Scrum Master role at [e-spres-oh] and she's very lucky to work with persons who never stop learning and improving themselves. Together we foster a knowledge sharing culture which focuses on continuous improvement.

Second Talk : Zaharie Dragos - "Accepting the reality with design for failure". In this talk we will discuss about managing failure and the importance of having the right amount of safety nets in place for a cloud native application.

Zaharie Dragos has the Product Owner role at Haufe. He has several experiences in this role including in a startup context

If you want to sponsor Agile Talks, please get in touch. Participants love having some drinks and some food in the evening so that can discuss the current burning matters with more energy.
