junior GOTO / 10:20 - 10:35

GOTO conferences are for grown ups! ;)
A lot of these grown ups have Mini-Me’s who might also be interested in technology. Be it programming a Raspberry Pi or building their first PC or a little robot. Gaming on a console or repairing the hoover. 

Let’s have a Junior GOTO!  
Junior GOTO will not be a conference, but several free one-day workshops taking place on weekends. Dajana will give you a insight why we want to make Junior GOTO happen, what we plan in the future and how you could be part of it.

There is more to Scrum than Scrum / 11:00 - 11:15

On the one hand you have the Scrum Guide, the theory. On the other hand you have people. And that is where practices come into play. In this talk I'll discuss three important obstacles on the people-side of the story of implementing scrum:

  1. Several people in a room is not the same as being a team
  2. You do not have to have special skills if you want to be a Scrum Master
  3. Not every organisational culture is immediately "fit" for Scrum
