An evening at Xpug: Bdd presentation

Category: agile,bdd,me,presentationgiordano scalzo @ 10:24 pm

Last evening, I gave a speech about Bdd, at the wonderful Milan XPUg.
The meeting has been very pleasant: I believe the members are among the most brilliant mind I know.

I could admit I didn’t know very well Bdd, but following the good old advice “teach to learn“, I got a triple win:
I taught something new to Xpug guys, I learned a lot of new things and I improved my presentation skill.

Moreover, after a couple of hours after I put online my slides, the Slideshare team promoted my presentation in home page as features presentation: what a great result for a weekend presentation hack!

Scrum in an Hour

Category: agile,presentationgiordano scalzo @ 10:50 pm

Some time ago, I attended a Scrum Master Course (I’m embarrassed to call it Certification…) held by the Agile pioneer and team dynamics expert Joseph Pelrine.

It was an exciting and enriching experience, although little sigular because we were only two student: Pierlugi Pugliese and me!

Anyway, back to work my boss asked me to prepare a little presentation on Scrum to the upper and middle management; so I looked around and took several sources to write a simple, but appealing presentation.

The presentation was a success so that I performed it three more time to the whole Engineering department!
