What’s Agile Tour Brussels?
It’s the 2nd edition of the conference Agile Tour Brussels. Last year we gathered attendees and speakers from Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Switzerland to share our passion for Agile. The purpose of this conference is to gather in one place Agile practitioners and people wanting to know more about Agile.
As you may know, every month, the Agile Belgium Community organizes Drinkups, See here for more details. During the drinkups of February, several participants told us they would like to have an evening with an agenda, preferably on the topic of Agile Games.
In March we decided to relaunch the Agile Belgium User Groups by organizing a first Agile Games Night @ Touring Insurance. You can have a look at this past event here.
We are happy to announce you that we will organize a second User Group on the same theme: The Agile Games Night II on 06/06/2013.
The end of 2012 was quite busy and full of excitements… Here are my last news.
The Agile Tour Brussels, was a success we were almost sold-out and we have received plenty of nice feedback from the participants. We will do it again in 2013. If you want to be part of the organization team for 2013, just let me know. Slides of presentation are available on http://atbru.be.
My first Agile Grenoble was a great experience for me. One of the greatest conference of France without any doubt. I especially liked the audience, very mature in my opinion.
A few months ago, I was trainer for a training program. Theme was The Video Game Industry. It was organized by a Belgian Video Games Studio: Fishing Cactus. I was in charge of the project management course (using Agile and Scrum). Indeed Scrum is the most used method in the Video Games Industry.
After a few months, six students have created their own studio: Atomic Turtle Studio. Drip, their first game is already available.
In this video, you can see them “in action”. And mostly, you can also see Scrum in the real world. You can even hear the word “Scrum” around 1’43”. Video is french speaking. (Vidéo Tele MB – Mons Television)
Since quite long now, I haven’t published anything, but I’m back. I have plenty of good excuses for the delay :-)
The best, in my opinion, being the fact that I was busy organizing an Agile Conference in Belgium. The Agile Tour Brussels, an English speaking event. Program is available on http://atbru.be . Registration is open and the event will take place on 26th of October.
In the next few months, I will be speaker to some great Conferences, I hope you can join some, they are really nice events.
