Speaker Details

Marco Consolaro
Alcor Academy
Software crafter, technical coach, international speaker, Systems thinker, symmathecist, philosopher - all mixed with some Venetian humor.Co-author of the award-winning book "Agile Technical Practices Distilled - A learning journey in technical practices and principles of software design".I self-learned Basic on a Commodore when I was 9 and my passion for programming has never faded since. I have been working for the past 20 years between Italy and UK, embracing ideas from Lean, Agile, eXtreme Programming, Domain-Driven Design, and Systems Thinking.I recently co-founded Alcor Academy with the mission of helping technical leaders create a culture of engineering excellence through our innovative socio-technical training.
Whether it is more effective to adopt well-known
but still misunderstood Agile Technical Practices
or to keep doing what we did in the past again
and again despite the poor outcomes?
Is it worth investing time, money and effort to
learn practices and principles of Software Design?
Honestly, I think so! I will try to explain why with examples from my past experience. And I will tell you what are, in my opinion, the most relevant topics development teams need to comprehend to improve dramatically their chances to succeed.
We are putting business, software, and user experience experts on the same page!
In this four-hour workshop with Alessandro Di Gioia and Marco Consolaro (who collaborates with Alberto Brandolini), we’ll practice the Big Picture EventStorming applied to a real-world greenfield business scenario. We will consider the different perspectives (including the facilitator) in a process that spans large-scale discovery to leverage collaborative design. 
We’ll experience the how, and we’ll discuss the why.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to enable a Big Picture Eventstorming in your company!
No prior experience with EventStorming is needed.
You do not need a laptop to join this Master Class. In this very interactive workshop, you will be engaging with Alessandro, Marco, and other attendees most of the time. We will also spend considerable time standing and walking around, so please remember to wear comfortable shoes.
