Late May this year, Arild Strømhylden and I did a half day tutorial on Kanban at the Roots Conference in Bergen. After a short introduction to Kanban we played the always engaging getKanban game developed by Russel Healy and rounded it up with some experience sharing and discussions. The picture above shows a poll of what people liked the best at the conference. Although we didn’t quite reach Dan Norths level (I can live with that, anybody who has seen Dan North in action understands why), we were quite pleased by the fact that our session seemed to be highly appreciated amongst the attendees 🙂 And if you have not yet seen Dan North in action, be sure to check out the RootsConf website.
One of the most interesting talks during the conference was the Programming Anarchy talk by Fred George and 3 of his colleagues, I will do a write-up on that talk in an upcoming post.
I enjoyed two great days at the conference, both as a speaker and as an attendee. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend the conference party, rumors says it was awesome! Karianne, André and Erik, three of my colleagues from Miles Bergen, did an excellent job together with the rest of the crew in organizing this conference. Thanks!
