When Jonathan Berger from Pivotal said he's in town for Future of Web Design and up for a meetup, I couldn't resist. It's short notice, but if you are - like me - nerdy about how the tools we use (think physical boards, Jira, Pivotal Tracker, your own hacks, etc), this event is for you.
Format of the night:
2) Group activity
Jonathan Berger (http://www.jonathanpberger.com/) is interested in people and technology and how they relate to each other. Jonathan is a UX unicorn at Pivotal Labs, and also runs Market Publique, an online vintage marketplace. In this short talk, he will share how the multi-disciplinary team at Pivotal collaborates and how UX is integrated into the teams.
David Gildeh was formerly Founder & CEO of SambaStream, before being acquired by Alfresco, the worlds second largest open-source software company specialising in Document Management and Online Collaboration. David now works as Director of Cloud services overseeing the launch of Alfresco's new Cloud Service, and will share how their growing, distributed team collaborate, reflect on their workflow, and how using Jira as a tool is working out for them.
After the talks, we'll break into smaller groups, to share learning from our own processes, challenges, experiences. Get insights from peers. Draw your Kanban or Scrum board. Discuss the relationship of good process and tools.
Jonathan and I will give you some pointers. If you don't work in a context that gives you something to share and are just curious to hear from others, don't worry, come along.
We'll finish the evening by sharing within the whole group before wrapping up and going for a drink.
