Open Cambridge

Our summer event this year will be an Open Space event. These are a great way to share ideas with other people and learn from your peers. As with our Round-Table discussions, the agenda is assembled on the day by the participants. If you want to play around with a new language or programming technique for an hour, run a workshop on removing a particular code smell or to get to know your tools better, or discuss with other craftsman a subject close to your heart, simply add it to the programme on the morning!

    I promised to link to the talk about the 12 hour project plan as well, but it's not yet available.
    The basic idea is that any project is broken down to fit with the clock face, because both the developer and the project manager will understand the urgency of "half past 8 and you say you're less that half way through the tasks" - no matter how you estimate or run your sprints.

      I like this: simple and probably effective.

    I promised a link to Strategyzer - the thing about the Value Proposition Model and the Business Proposition Canvas:

    This is their blog which I find very useful - it can translate quite easily into one product within a bigger business. If you are ever in charge of making a decision about whether to build a piece if software or product - read this first! :-)
