SCRUM Battle on NoorderTest 2014

The castle in Groningen, venue of NoorderTest 2014

Historically I doubt whether the Castle in Groningen was ever under siege. This month however a serious battle will take place at the venue.

Next week, on Thursday 9th the NNOT (1) organizes the 7th edition of the NoorderTEST. During this conference the Castle will host a fine series of lectures by e.g. Rudi Niemeijer, Leo van der Aalst, Eric van der Meulen. See the full program

Highlight of the day is the SCRUM Battle. Together with Egbert Bouman I will lead our teams into the world of SCRUM. If you want to experience how to work in agile teams, this your chance.  I previously wrote about this game simulation on this blog: SCRUM Battle, Fun way to experience agile in which an enthusiastic participant writes:

“The success of the SCRUM battle wasn’t only because of the enthusiasm shown by the participants, but also thanks to the incredibly engaging Scrum Masters. They made learning this Scrum-technique fun and entertaining to do. I doubt there was anyone present that evening that did not learn something new that evening.”

If you want to join us in the battle, feel free. You can leave your traditional armor at home, might want to bring your laptop and smartphone. Those are the tools for the modern quality fighter 😉
