Summary The talk is about principles, values and techniques, many of them inspired by XP, learned from Kent Beck's books. Some other thoughts are inspired by experience, often learned from mistakes. After 30 minutes of talk we expect to have an open discussion to share what we understand by maintainable code and how to achieve it.

  • SoCraTes Day Berlin 2018
    This is a placeholder event. The actual event is organized via www.socratesday.berlin and you have to join the waitinglist there to enter the lottery! Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals (from the Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship) SoCraTes Day Berlin is an OpenSpace unconference in the spirit of all the other SoCraTes Unconferences and Days throughout the world. This means that there will be no conference schedule upfront! Instead, you, the participants, create the schedule in the morning of the conference. Bring your topics and we take care of the rest! Do you want to talk about your agile process or try out a new workshop format? Maybe show off your latest pet project in Elm? Or do you want to know how to learn a particular language? Monads maybe? Or want to brew the perfect coffee with other coffee afficiandos? Whatever happens is the only thing that could happen, and whoever comes is the right person for your session! Sign up for the lottery until Jul 28 to be in time for the first drawing!

  • Talk : Agility Requires Safety
    This time we have a talk by Yevgeniy (Jim) Brikman (https://www.ybrikman.com) co-founder of Gruntwork, a company that provides DevOps as a Service. For more information see summary and about speaker section below. Schedule 19:00 Doors open 19:15 Talk starts … get together after talk. Summary In 2011, LinkedIn had over 100 million users, was growing at more than 2 members per second, and had an IPO. The company also had so much tech debt that it nearly ground to a halt. We had to go through a massive DevOps transformation—a project called "InVersion"—to survive. The key insight behind that transformation: agility requires safety. To go faster in a car, a bigger engine is not enough; you also need safety mechanisms like brakes, air bags, and seat belts. The same is true of software: for most software teams, how fast you go is not limited by how quickly you can write code, but how quickly you can deploy the code without doing too much damage. This is a talk about some of the most important safety mechanisms that allow you to build software faster, based on painful lessons learned from Project Inversion. About the speaker Yevgeniy (Jim) Brikman loves programming, writing, speaking, traveling, and lifting heavy things. He is the co-founder of Gruntwork, a company that provides DevOps as a Service. He's also the author of two books published by O'Reilly Media: Hello, Startup (https://www.hello-startup.net/) and Terraform: Up & Running (https://www.terraformupandrunning.com/). Previously, he worked as a software engineer at LinkedIn, TripAdvisor, Cisco Systems, and Thomson Financial.

  • Monthly Event : Bank Account Kata
    Software Craftsmanship is more than coding. Let's learn more about each other and start building a community of professionals to solve things that are bothering us. But it is also about practice and writing well-crafted software. Therefore we will practice TDD and work on a coding katas with constraints. This time we will explore the Bank Account Kata, for a rough outline what we will be getting into see : http://kata-log.rocks/banking-kata Please (if possible) bring your laptop and a working development environment with a project with a failing test. You can find some bootstrap projects here: https://github.com/swkBerlin/kata-bootstraps We strive to provide a safe environment for everyone: https://github.com/swkBerlin/values/blob/master/safe_environment.md There will be sandwiches and drinks Schedule 18:45 - doors open 19:15 - event starts 21:30 - closing

  • Talk: More with LeSS: A Decade of Descaling with LeSS
    This time we have a talk by Craig Larman (http://www.craiglarman.com/wiki/index.php?title=Craig_Larman) about the Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS (https://less.works/)). For more information see summary and about speaker section below. Schedule 18:45 Doors open 19:00 Talk starts … get together after talk. Summary As the co-creator of LeSS (with my friend and colleague Bas Vodde), after a decade of working worldwide with large product groups in their adoption of LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum)(https://less.works/), organizations are starting to realize that the main goal of LeSS is not to enable traditional big groups to "meet their commitment" more efficiently. And they are realizing that LeSS is not “Scrum contained within each team, with something different on top.” It seems some scaling frameworks contain Scrum like a fire fighter contains a brushfire. Then what is LeSS about? It is to see the ineffectiveness of traditional large-scale organizational design and to change it, by descaling with LeSS towards a simple model for multiple teams that optimizes for agility (flexibility), learning, and flow of value. It is figuring out how, with multiple teams, to apply the simple principles and elements of Scrum that encourage empirical process control, transparency, self-managing teams, and systems optimization. But any structural change per definition challenges the status quo of middle-management and single-specialist positions, leading to the dynamics of Larman's Laws of Organizational Behavior. In this meetup I'll explore descaling with LeSS About the Speaker Craig Larman is the co-creator of LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum), with his friend and colleague Bas Vodde. He works as an organizational design consultant, introducing LeSS with executive teams for very large and multisite product development (often, HW-SW systems). He also works with product management for highly complex product definitions, and hands-on as an embedded-systems legacy-code C and C++ TDD coach, to keep in touch with the real work and workers.
