2:30pm to 4:00pm (EET)

Format: Workshop
Audience Max: 30
Come with your Laptop!

All agile approaches focus on working on small pieces of features. But development teams as well as business-oriented peoples (like Product Owners in Scrum) struggle to split functionalities into small chunks. They claim that it doesn’t make sense. On the other side, we met teams that split features from a technical perspectives, a strategy that matter only for the development team.
Yet, the feature split is possible more often than not. It’s often a question of practice and discipline.
During this workshop, we’ll train ourselves to split features to the extreme with a hard constraint on realization duration. Because, we will not only talk and imagine slicing, we will also argue about it and put it in practice through a programming episode led into very small slices.

Learning objectives
•How to slice large applications into 1-day to 1-week requests, from the business perspective
•How to slice application requests into 15-30 minute work slices, from both the business and programming perspective
•What Carpaccio is (have you already learned that while browsing this page?)
