• Virtual Agile Camp Berlin 2020

    Online event

    €29.00

    PLEASE NOTE: The vACB20 is a non-profit event. Nevertheless, it is not a free event. Tickets are available at € 29 incl. 16 % VAT here: https://2020.agile-camp-berlin.com/register/ ____________ Join 200 peers on October 22-24, 2020: (1) The vACB20’s Schedule, Session Proposals, Technology, and Workshops Learn all about the organization of the virtual Agile Camp Berlin 2020 schedule, from your session proposals to session planning to the essential technology to enjoy the best possible experience. (2) The Virtual Agile Camp Berlin 2020 Schedule We will have three virtual conference days instead of the in-person Agile Camp Berlin’s usual two days. Also, we need to invest more time preparing the vACB20, as for obvious reasons, we cannot improvise at the usual level when we go virtual. The great news is that we do not have to clean up the venue afterward. (Although it is incredible to see how fast that works when 30-40 people join the effort.) The schedule of vACB20 looks as follows: • October 14, 2020, from 4-6 pm: Session planning. (Please suggest your sessions in advance, as we need to set up the event software accordingly.) • October 22, 2020, from 1-7 pm: Day 1 of the Agile Camp Berlin 2020. • October 23, 2020, from 1-7 pm: Day 2 of the Agile Camp Berlin 2020. • October 24, 2020, from 1-5 pm: Day 3 of the Agile Camp Berlin 2020. • October 24, 2020, from 5-6 pm: Retrospective of the virtual Agile Camp Berlin 2020. We will have an additional prep session for the sessions hosts to introduce the event software. (3) The Technology of the Virtual Agile Camp Berlin 2020 You may have heard of the expression “Cambrian explosion” before. Beyond paleontology, it refers to when we suddenly observe a fundamental shift to more diversity in a specific field. At the moment, the software market for organizing virtual events goes through such a Cambrian explosion. After checking out several contenders, and even running trials, we opted for Veertly.com, a brand-new application from a startup that shows remarkable dedication, speed, and—more importantly—great support for our virtual Barcamp than other players. We will use Veertly.com as the wrapper application of the virtual Agile Camp Berlin 2020. Veertly provides breakout rooms that adhere to the law-of-two-feet and a large central stage where we will be live streaming Content. It also supports personal video chat rooms for attendees that can replicate the serendipity moments you enjoy during an in-person event at the coffee machines. Technically speaking, you will need an up-to-date browser — preferably Chrome — to participate in the vACB20. We also recommend using an external microphone to improve your sound quality. Some sessions may require additional software, think of Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Google Apps, to fully appreciate the intended experience. Those requirements will be listed in the description of the session. (4) The Agile Camp Berlin Workshop Day One area that we are still working on is the Agile Camp Berlin Workshop Day. Initially, we planned to provide well-known trainers and coaches with an opportunity — here: space — to run one-day workshops the day before the Agile Camp Berlin 2020. It looks like that those workshops might be transferred to virtual live-classes, and we will keep you posted on the development! (5) Guest Speakers? Given that Veertly provides a central stage, we could also live-stream talks from guest speakers or even a panel of speakers. We are working on this idea of guest speaking, too, and will keep you posted.

  • Hands-on Agile #27: Virtual Open Space Events w/ Veertly

    PLEASE READ THE FINEPRINT FIRST: 1. You need to RSVP to receive an invitation. 2. I communicate with people who RSVP’ed via Meetup.com’s internal messaging system. Ignore emails from Meetup at your risk. 3. I kindly ask for your understanding that RSVPs will no longer be available from September 30, 2020, on for organizational reasons without exception. HANDS-ON AGILE 27: How do we run a virtual open space event or BarCamp with a large number of participants? Principally, we could use break-out rooms for organizing the sessions. The question is, though, how do we ensure that the law-of-two-feet still applies? By making everyone a co-host? Probably not the best idea in some situations. After our unsuccessful trial with Unhangout earlier this year, we will try a new platform called Veertly this time.
