Watch the talk now
Watch a recording of the talk, published after the conference:
Aino is a teacher, a technical conference editor and a retrospectives facilitator. She holds a master's degree and a ph.d. in computer science. She has 12 years of experience with Patterns in Software Development and 20 years of experience with agile processes in academia and industry. She also teaches how to teach Computer Science to teachers and thus lives up to the name of her company, Metadeveloper. In her spare time, she runs and sings (but claims not to do both at the same time).
Maximizing Value by Minimizing Repeated Failure
Feedback loops are an essential part of software development. Or, at least, they should be. As a consultant, I always try to optimize the feedback loops; between stakeholders and team, between team and management, between different teams and within the team itself. Listen to this talk about how to fix the loops that turn out not to be loops but just half circles with arrows.
A few words about the speaker
Many years ago an old student of mine said he had solved the challenges of offshoring. The only problem left was communication. I thought it was hilarious since communication was the challenge in my opinion. Not just for offshoring, but overall.
I had the privilege of reading a draft of Aino Vonge Corry’s book “Retrospective Antipatterns” and it’s a treasure of knowledge for how to improve communication in many settings. With bad communication, the value creation won’t take off. When the theme of myConf was decided, I immediately thought about asking Aino to speak!
On top of getting tips on how to improve the feedback loops, I think a bonus of the presentation might be to learn how to count in Danish!
