The 19th event in our lineup, this autumn edition promises to be a gathering of minds, echoing the spirit of change that the fall season brings. We’re thrilled to present two experienced speakers who will share their expertise and insights – this time more focused on Agile side of the tech.
And this time we have two speakers:

As usual we will have two presentations followed by networking:
Design Thinking + Facilitate Learning for Development by André Nitzschmann
In today’s digital landscape, design has become the Pandora’s box of digitization, presenting a curious challenge to explore its insights. André’s talk delves into the features that form the basis of the architecture, emphasizing that the exploration of the user journey is an ongoing process. Users often find it challenging to define requirements until they experience the solution. This talk prompts us to ponder whether our thinking guides the design of smart digital services effectively. It raises questions about how software development can truly serve the people and encourages us to rethink our approach.
What is Professional Scrum by Leonid Uljankin
“What is Professional Scrum?” This question often lingers in the minds of practitioners. In this engaging talk, Leonid Uljankin invites participants to explore the nuances that differentiate Professional Scrum from conventional Scrum practices. Together, attendees will unravel the intricacies of Professional Scrum, understanding its unique elements and how it elevates the standard Scrum framework.
