As Dr. Alistair Cockburn will be in Brussels for the first time, along with Agile Brussels meetup we are excited to invite the community to attend this fascinating practical story based Q&A session.

( NOTE: The Heart of Agile Conference on May 24th has been postponed to September. The 2-day HoA class remains as scheduled.)

Answering Questions with Stories

Stories answer questions in a wonderful, sometimes roundabout way that permits the inclusion of contextual details left out of straightforward answers. And they are much more fun to listen to.

In this Q&A session, Alistair will solicit questions from the audience and answer them in the somewhat unusual form by telling stories from the hundreds of projects and companies he has seen. Show up with a question or three on any topics you care about, and watch to see what stories will show up to shed light on them. (Caveat: there will be many more questions asked than can be answered in this session, so not all questions will be chosen.)

18:30 - Welcome Networking and drinks
19:00 - Alistair Answering Questions with Stories
20:00 - More networking and drinks
20:30 - Closure

We will be updating soon this invitation with the location.

Many thanks to Heart of Agile Europe that will invite the drinks.

Hope to see you there! :)
