The Sweet Spot with Alberto Brandolini

  • Apr 27, 2016 · 5:30 PM

There’s an unexplored area at the heart of software development. When you start working on the real problem, normal rules don’t apply any more or start looking meaningless. However understanding what ‘the real problem’ is, isn’t trivial and a lot of companies just do stuff in order to meet some goals.

In this talk we’ll see how insights from Theory of Constraints, Kanban, CQRS, Domain-Driven Design, EventStorming and User Experience all blend together to help us discover the real problem and streamline the path from problem discovery to implementation of workable solution.

Event plan:

17:00 - Doors open at ABAX canteen, drinks provided

17:30 - Event starts

18:30 - Pizza and drinks

19:30 (approx) - Event finishes, we go to Larvik Mikrobryggeri (you pay for drinks yourself)

Speaker details:

Alberto Brandolini


A 360° consultant in the Information Technology field. Asserting that problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that originated them, Alberto switches perspective frequently assuming the architect, mentor, coach, manager or developer point of view. He’s a frequent speaker in software development related conferences in Italy and across Europe, since rumors spread about his funny attitude. Besides consulting and running Avanscoperta, he’s also a trainer for UK based company Skills Matters where he teaches Domain-Driven Design. He’s also the founder of the Italian Domain-Driven Design community and of the Italian Stoos Satellite, and actively participates in debates about agile software development, lean management and new ways for entrepreneurship and collaboration.

    Very good talk. Having a hands-on session was very nice. It felt like Alberto ran out of time in the last part (after pizza).
