Organising Large Miro Boards For Remote Workshops

Strategic Tech

Back in the summer I shared some of the techniques I’d been using to reimagine my in-person architecture workshops as remote digital offerings with Miro. My typical workshops usually range from 2 half days to 6 half days in duration spread over the course of 1–2 weeks.

Remote Workshops Using Miro: What I’ve Learned So Far

Strategic Tech

Recently I ran a fully remote, 2 full-day, Strategic Domain-Driven Design workshop using Miro. I knew that I didn’t want the online workshop to be a poor version of the in-person training. In this novel space of online workshops have the creativity of two different people allowed us to produce an experience unrecognisable to what I could have produced alone. The Bounded Context Canvas As we progress through the workshop, we add more information to the canvas.

Tips for Running Workshops

Tim Kadlec

In one of the Slack groups I’m in, someone asked a question about running workshops and what folks found that has or hasn’t worked. Being authentic is one of the most important things you can do whether you’re giving a workshop, giving a talk or writing. I didn’t do all these things at the first workshops I presented. Every workshop I run, I start with a blank slide and ask the folks in the room what they want to get out of the day.

Improving Flow through Integration in Santa’s Workshop: A Fictional Case Study

Tasktop

This weekend, I was watching the movie Elf and it got me thinking – how does Santa’s Workshop keep up with the demands of a booming population? I knew that if I wanted to figure out how to improve the flow of value through Santa’s Workshop I would need a visual. I sat down with one of our Value Stream Architects to discuss what’s flowing through Santa’s Workshop and how we could eliminate waste in their value stream through integration.

STELLA: report from the SNAFU-catchers workshop on coping with complexity , Woods 2017, Coping with Complexity workshop. Today’s choice is a report from a 2017 workshop convened with that title, and recommended to me by John Allspaw – thank you John!

Modelling Bounded Contexts with the Bounded Context Design Canvas: A Workshop Recipe

Strategic Tech

This is the question I get asked the most, so I’ve put together this article describing a workshop recipe you can use. This workshop format is designed around both of these needs and uses two tools in order to find the most effective system design: EventStorming and the Bounded Context Design Canvas. The Bounded Context Design Canvas I designed this canvas based on the typical flow of strategic DDD workshops I run publicly and privately.

Implementing Responsive Design Workshop

Tim Kadlec

On June 14th, I’m going to teach a one-day Implementing Responsive Design workshop at the McNamara Alumni Center in Minneapolis. The workshop will run the full day and will go from the core tenants of responsive design through to more advanced topics such as performance optimization, feature detection, RESS and more. The workshop is intended to be a bit flexible and include topics that you want to see covered.

Bandwidth or Latency: When to Optimise for Which

CSS Wizardry

In this quick post, I want to share a little DevTools tip that I go through in my performance workshops: a simple way to quickly and roughly work out whether your assets would benefit most from an increase in bandwidth or a reduction in latency, which actually brings me onto my first point: It’s something of a misnomer to use phrases like increase in bandwidth. When it comes to network performance, there are two main limiting factors that will slow you down: bandwidth and latency.

SpringOne Platform: Four great days of sharing new ways of innovating with Pivotal Platform

The Three Types of Performance Testing

CSS Wizardry

My involvement with clients here is usually workshops and training: teaching developers the knowledge and tooling required to effectively conduct performance audits, and making teams self-sufficient. A lot of companies—even if they are aware that performance is key to their business—are often unsure of how, when, or where performance testing sits within their development lifecycle.

At the moment my priority is to help any family, friends, and neighbours in need.
