Kanban Testing And Lego
Here Kristoffer tells you how he started working with a team of fantastic developers and how they took a product with a disillusioned user base, a code base in desperate need of maintenance and re-factoring, and how they turned the ship around.
What happens when you start engaging with the users and actively reward them for their feedback, opinions, and yes even bugs posted? How can perform a massive refactoring of a code base without introducing regression bugs?
What are the effects of stating publicly that bugs are always priority one and that they should be fixed immediately? What happens when you also start living accordingly?
He introduces gamification, continuous integration, and we switched the way-of-working from scrum to Kanban.
Oh and did I mention that they built their Kanban board out of Lego and did some really cool things with a Raspberry Pi!
He will tell you why managers should stay out of technical decisions, what a manager really should focus on, and how important it is to build a culture of self-organizing teams and people.
Because in the end the best thing you can have in your career is a fantastic team you can rely on, feel respected in, and to have engaged users to whom you feel you contribute continuous value for with your product.
