ALE 2014 Unconference Summary

Open Space Software Development at ALE14 Unconference

From 20-22.08.2014 a couple of colleagues and I have been to ALE 2014 unconference. ALE is a conference focusing on Agile Lean practices and is organized via a LinkedIn user group, http://www.linkedin.com/groups/Agile-Lean-Europe-ALE-3786271

On top of a regular schedule, the conference provides Open Space sessions where attendees can suggest their own topics and get together to share their experiences.

What is Open Space Software Development #OSSWDEV?

The idea to hold an Open Space Software Development session during a conference was born in 2012. The idea is to provide a simple infrastructure setup and see what happens when developers and agile people meet and develop a piece of software with limited time and resources. For more details on how everything started check out ALE 2012 https://blog.codecentric.de/en/2012/09/osswdev-at-ale2012/

What did we prepare and bring along for ALE 2014?

  • We setup  a development and production infrastructure, including source code repository, continuous delivery pipeline and test/staging/production servers using Amazon EC2 instances
  • We prepared a working skeleton of the application that can be used as a starting point (based on previous #OSSWDEV sessions)
  • An initial backlog of user stories to get us started
  • A lot of Enthusiasm
