Agile Talks wants to bring together people who are passionate about software development and agile methods.
We will have two talks of maximum 30 minutes and after that two Open Space slots for around one hours.
The event ends with a group retrospective and with some conclusions from the participants.
Agile Talks is a great opportunity to both learn from other people's experiences and discuss your own topics during the Open Space.
First Talk: Vlad Herdean - "Thoughts on setting and evaluating personal and team objectives without shooting your Agile transformation in the foot". I would like to take a moment and discuss how organizations embarking on an Agile transformation might approach setting and evaluating personal and team objectives without negatively impacting the inevitable shift in organizational culture that needs to occur if said transformation is to be a success.
About him: Vlad is passionate about Agile in general, Scrum in particular and currently works as a Product Owner for Continental. He likes debating complex topics, coaching and mechanical keyboards as an art form. Vlad owns way too many keyboards.
Second Talk: Mihai Simioana - "Fail faster in Java - The Agile Startup Approach". We will discuss how to survive in an startup environment by using Agile methodologies with special focus on fail faster in Java - agile development on a macro level.
About Mihai: He is as much a software developer as developer of teams. He owns a small company called IdeaHub in Timisoara, which is specialized in building Java applications, mostly for external customers. The company focuses on data mining for mobile applications (IOS,Android), cybe security, breach detection and ETL.
