What we're about

This is a lunch for discussions of all things related to software crafting.

Whether you are just getting interested in software crafting or have been doing it for a while, this is a great way to connect with others and learn new things.

We'll use the Lean Coffee format (over lunch) which creates an informal discussion agenda on the fly. It allows a bunch of different topics in an hour, so if you have a question that you would like to get answered or a topic to discuss, bring them with you. You create the agenda and allow the most important themes to emerge.

Software Craft Lunch

Crossroads

This is the Lean Coffee format variant that we use: 1. Everyone writes a line or two on an index card about what s/he wants to talk about. Write a couple; take only a couple of minutes. 2. Shuffle the cards and create a stack. 3. Pick the first index card from the stack. Start a timer for 5 minutes. Go. People with something to say, do so. 4. When the timer goes off, do thumbs-up/thumbs-horizontal/thumbs-down voting to decide whether to continue or move on to the next index card. Thumbs-up == I want to keep talking about this; thumbs-horizontal == I don’t have anything to say; thumbs-down == I’m done with this topic. If the majority wants to continue, restart the timer for another 3 minutes. Once the majority has nothing more to say, go to the next index card. 5. Retrospective
