Are you a developer, a designer or product manager? If so, this workshop is for you!

One of the biggest challenges coming into an agile environment is learning to expand your product thinking and to collaborate. By improving your product thinking, you’re able to solve problems quicker and when everyone’s on the same page, you can ship quicker!

In this workshop, you will be broken down into teams and be faced with product design challenges. You will be tasked of designing it as a team to meet design, business and technical requirements. You will be thrown a few obstacles to consider like in a real life work environment that will force you to choose between version 1’s to final versions. Essentially, you’ll be exposed to certain scopes and will be redesigning within the constraints that meets everyone’s needs.

Industry professionals will be walking around to help and provide insight, join into groups and try to break your designs.
