Monthly Meetup – January 2017

Being a developer is easy: you just have to type the right codes about the right things. Right? The only problem is…how do you determine what’s right? No fear, this month’s speaker, Pim Elshoff, will share his “Observatio” on helping clients determine their needs in real world situations.

With space generously provided by the fine folks at Utrecht Inc and food & drinks provided by DomCode, come on over, share some observations and meet some awesome local startups!

Talk: Observatio
Making mistakes is the best way to learn. It’s also the most expensive way. At Procurios, we’ve been learning for well over a decade. In this time we’ve worked on tons of projects for many customers. We’ve written millions of lines of code, and deleted just as many. We’ve made functional designs and we’ve made backlogs. And we’d like to share what we’ve learned with you.

This non-technical talk will give a brief overview on how we do the right things, do the things right, and do things better. We will look at user stories, create persona’s, construct a story map and gaze upon an actual real-life fail wall. Come learn from our mistakes, for cheap!

I’ve been a developer-for-hire for over a decade and a professional developer any time soon now. With over half that time spent working with scrum at Procurios, the agile mindset has really clicked for me. Technology will always be a passion of mine, but with more experience my focus has shifted to people. I’m enthusiastic, I’ve got a loud mouth and I’m professionally stubborn.
