On this years W-JAX I had the pleasure to host a session about explorative product development. The session was about the appropriate mixture of methods and software architecture especially, but not only, for projects in the pioneering phase. A good example of the Creative Software Workbench in action. You can see the session recording on entwickler.de (subscription required).
This autumn I am going to moderate the Jax Innovation Forum and the DevOps Transformation Day again. On both days we will also have Lean Coffee Sessions, a format that incorporates input from the attendees. It is very energetic, interesting and fun. On top of that we conduct it even in hybrid mode, in which you can participate no matter whether you are on site or in the office. If you are interested in those kinds of events we can also carry it out it in your organisation. The event will be adjusted according to your corporate needs. You can find more information here.
Save the date: Monday 2.May 13:30 Rheingoldhalle Mainz or Online
From 8.November 21 to 12.November 21 W-JAX is taking place in Munich. W-JAX is the winter version of JAX, which is the leading conference for professional software development in Germany. This year W-JAX will be hybrid, that is people can attend personally or online from whereever they are.
I have the pleasure to moderate this years agile day again. The main topic of the day is agile beyond development. Many organisations are applying agile frameworks and techniques with good results. But business agility is often not achieved. That’s why we have choosen inspiring sessions about agility at the business level.
My session is about Kanban Flight Levels and OKRs. I am going to show how to establish coordination and alignment levels on top of agile teams.
The last session will be an interactive lean coffee session in which you can bring in and discuss your own topics.
I am looking forward to this great conference day and hope to meet you there.
In 2021 many organisations are trying to become more agile. They do that by applying techniques such as Scrum or Kanban. In the articles I wanted to shed some light on more hidden aspects of cultural development which I think is the real success factor of agile organizational development.
Recently I published a series of articles about agile culture development in the German IT magazines Java Magazin and Windows Developer.
Those are the Java Magazin issues that contain the article:
I am glad to see that this time the article was published in two magazines. Those are the Windows Developer magazines.

In the years 2019 and 2020 I had the pleasure to support TIMOCOM in the implementation of their brand new Big Data Platform.
When we started the initiative the company had an existing BI-System to perform reporting and statistical analysis. The aim was to extend the capapabilities of the company to collect, store and analyse huge amount of data. A Big Data solution comprising best of breed open source products was chosen. The new technology stack is able to scale not only technically but also business wise as it ist completely license cost free. It is based on technologies such as Java, Python, Hadoop, Hive, Kafka, Spark and HBase.
The new platform enables the company to gain new insights from their data today an tomorrow. It is an important step in the future to support their data driven business model.
Thank you for attending my sessions at JAX 2019. The slide decks and source code can be downloaded here:Big Data zum Anfassen – Spark, Hive, Kafka & Co.
JAX is one of the most known conferences for Java, architecture and software innovation in Germany. Im am glad to be invited this year to give some sessions. Between the 6th and 10th May 2019 JAX will be taking place at Rheingold Halle in Mainz.
Agile product teams are becoming more and more mission critical. On the 6th I am going to give a presentation about the way agile product teams can be built by applying software architecture principles such a resilience and performance to teams.
When people start learning Big Data technologies for many it seems to be complex due to the sheer amount of products in the Big Data ecosystem. On the 8th I am going to show a simple Big Data Stack to get started with. I am going to set up a working stack from scratch and implement a working lambda architecture.
You can see the timeslots on the JAX website. I look forward to seeing you there.
