Talk: Agile Lean Europe 2014 – Being a Community Bumble-Bee

During the last five years or so I have been travelling Europe and meeting a lot of people in local communities of practice. My main purpose is to teach the local groups and to learn from them. My purpose was and is to pollinate ideas from one community to the other. If more of us do this, our knowledge will grow richer and faster.

The main visible activity of the Agile Lean Europe community is the ALE Unconference that moves each year from city to city. But there are a lot of less visible activities, people meet each other and learn across the country or language borders.

During this talk I want to share my learnings with you about local communities and how rich those experiences can be.

 

Here are the slides for Being a Community Bumble-Bee

A community event: Bring your own code

Bring your own code

Last month I started a new community event idea. It is called “Bring your own code”, and I “stole” it from what Antoine Vernois is doing in the Toulouse Software Craftsmanship Community. You can find here the event page. Tomorrow we will have the second edition that you can find here. Let’s go a bit into the mechanics of this event type.

Why

  • You have a project and you want a second opinion.
  • Your code needs improvements and you do not know where to start from.
  • You just like to show some awesome code and give it as an example.
