The Developer's Model for Talking to Managers

Almost every day we talk to team-members, colleagues, managers, product owners, stake holders and more. It’s an essential part of our work. It’s also very hard. We need to know the details, they need to know when it’s done. Talking can take up a lot of time and energy. Wouldn’t it be great to be really efficient at it?

Understanding our spheres of influence is key. When, where and how can we make the most impact and get the best results? What do we need from others, and what do they need from us? How can we be of service, without placating or just giving in? When is it best to say nothing at all?

This talk will cover the various spheres of influence we experience and which roles we play. We’ll discuss building trust for long term results and how we never ever say “no”. We’ll see how being mindful leaves us with more time and energy. Stop being a victim and start taking control.

A Practical Introduction to Domain Driven Design

More than just good code, DDD is about language. Language that your product owner and stake holders live. Language that your work must embody. Language your code should speak.

In this workshop we’ll learn how to make our code speak the language of our clients. We will gracefully evolve our understanding from nothing to something and learn to write code that radiates our understanding of the problem.

If you want to have better conversations, make more useful models and write better code, then this is the workshop for you.

Topics include:
* Out-of-the-box thinking and modelling
* Clean language essentials
* Matrushka doll design
* Lot’s and lot’s of DDD
