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. As attendees zoomed in and focused on specific topics, the overall workshop flow was always clear.

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.

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.

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.
