Yes The workshop and discussions about eduscrum! ?
Yes Great accommodation Thanks for the organization! Great work
Yes Sessions and discussions in between Some session pitches were not 100% clear.

Catch with old acquaintances. It's like a reunion

Drawing in the workshops => make a symbol library
Impact mapping
How to do a workshop with the customer to find out the requirements/features (which questions do I ask?)
Yes The organization Other location 6 hats
PO Game
Writing paper on the tables
Maybe :-) The talks & the people More or longer breaks for in-between chats :-) The Plouf and people types I expect to be surprised Thanks :-)
Yes! Everything
The "thumbs up" thing is a nice personal touch
This is pretty much the best conference already
There is a big chance The sessions were all interesting
I will use the things I learned
Location & food & beverages are good
That's hard :-) All things learned today are useful
I hope so Different kinds of people sharing some common values
Great atmosphere
Inspiring environment

Yes! Cream of the crop sessions

Yes Good setup and planning
Everything well-prepared
Nice balance between tech and "soft" topics
?
I am already pretty happy with this
Going to use the PO Game, investigate the "people I can't stand" further Scaling with pitfalls and advantages
Yes! 3 out of 4 sessions! Not bad! Tools for retro + planning I loved it. Very practical and great
Yes Great talks and great organization This is the second time I attend this and I don't have any remarks People management of the talk of "working with people you can't stand"
Product Owner Game (for sure)
Maybe, depending on the program Different kind of sessions, not everything about the same subject
Choices between different sessions (was also hard to choose though....)
Breaks in between the sessions so that you don't have to rush from session to session
I can't immediately think of anything to make the sessions better More open communication in the team and trying to get things done instead of just talking about them How to make things like Scrum work in your company. I'm sure it has a lot of advantages but it doesn't seem to always work well
If I can... All of it Enough chairs for everyone (first session PO Game) Be more aware of the Plouf in a courageous way
Maybe the Mini Days All talks high quality
Enough social time
Food
Practice visual facilitation
PO Game
Me as presenter
Maybe Good information, well-presented Sessions can be longer
Longer breaks
D.O.F.
Hiring practices
Yes Interactive sessions (SWBall, working with people you can't stand) Software ball => try with colleagues at work More like this
That or the next mini XP Days Pragmatic, "voeten op de grond" approach
For the community, by the community
No specific improvement points D.O.F. / Eduscrum Scaling experiences and good practices Thanks for the organization. Job well done!!
To Mini XP Days, yes Condensed information on relevant agile/scrum
Not process info, but personal skill info
With lunch I prefer to sit down Courage Pattern language (Scrum++)
Yes! Very interactive sessions
Wide variety of subjects
Quality of presentations
Aspects from sessions:
Product owner game
Desirements on the fly
Yes Nice variety of subjects
Many interactive sessions
Brainstorming techniques More of this stuff
Yes Product Owner Game Sun PO Game More games. Serious games LEGO?
Yes Stepping back from day to day programming and broadening my view I liked the idea of the soft(ware)ball game to visualize programming techniques
I will read the book on the people you can't stand!
I hope I will recognize the Plouf when it's there :-)
Mini XP Days: yes Food, presentations, speakers Interaction with people, especially the ones I can't stand Keep up the good work
Yes People
Interactive sessions
Fewer "presentations" Working with people I can't stand More hardcore XP More pens / feedback forms
Depends on the agenda Interactive sessions
Unique ways of presenting
Shorter sessions
More tech tracks
Telling about "the plouf"
Feedback cycles
Visualization techniques
More technology no
Of course! The interactive character of the sessions.
Some deeper insights
Maybe more real life examples. Things you can relate to I'm going to hunt "The Plouf"! Take actions immediately
Also use the visual facilitation
Maybe some insights in the process changes other companies did. Or a hands-on session on team forming no
Yes (maybe). Depends on my availabilities Good selection of sessions (actually, too many good sessions :-) ) I'd not change anything, it's perfect as it is Per M. Beining's product development model A bit more "activity-less" sessions. I don't always want to "work" during sessions.
Thumbs up goes to Per's presentation for not using slides but charts only!
Soft(ware)ball was awesome too
Yes, when in Elewijt :-) The Plouf session Plouf hunting More of the same
Probably yes Relaxed vibe. Not too many sessions
Lot of different subjects
More inspiring location I'm pretty new in this field, so probably a lot... No idea No. Oh yeah, great lunch ;-)
Yes All Projector in room 17 Feedback cycle Morning Lean Coffee More actions on mailing list
Think so Plouf + Agile Ball Game sessions
Meeting new & old faces
More green sessions Ball Game
Plouf
More green sessions
Probably to Mini XP Day Most of the sessions were noteworthy For the conference venue: the beamers were not projecting the entire slides on the wall Keep up the good work
Yes definitely Gave me great new ideas and insights Sandwiches :-) Improve backlog and planning Lots of new stuff Keep up the good work
Yes People organized sessions More active sessions at the end of the day Tactics for dealing with difficult people Beyond agile/scrum Breaks are too long
Air is too stuffy
The game
Exposure to professionals using Agile day in day out
Real examples, concrete projects. Not only theory
Not sure yet Good to experience another culture. Definitely a different type of conference and type of companies participating in it Product Owner Value game Conference setting & catering was good
Location
Interaction
Think about Plouf :-)
How to get along with people you can't stand
More interesting technical session
I'd definitely like to The presentations, the organizations, everything in general Encourage more "networking" between people, for example try to have presenters during the whole day, so you can still ask and talk with them for the things you are interested in Having techniques and trying to get things done, not just ideas Different topics :-) Keep up the good work
Also, more information and introduction on the XP Days
No, sadly I won't Seeing friends, nice conversations One more session in the day (5)
Slightly shorter sessions (certainly for the presentations)
Tactics from "I can't stand...." Great job, keep it up!
Not everyone might be ok with "named" feedback
I hope so! Interactive workshops
Met new people, nice people from whom I can learn
Food
I learned new things that can be applied to my team for a better communications
Come with new workshops next time
If a workshop is not interactive, is hard to follow it for an hour taking into account that it is a whole day of workshops
Communication
Relations
Agile like things
"hat" model
Deal with people I can't stand and try not to be one of them
Parallel between agile and other methodologies
To be able to convince other people to adopt this way of working and thinking
Keep going! :-)
Yes Everything Different location, different scenery, different rooms
More women speakers, more women participants
Plouf
Make your request ready to be signed
Dealing with a "no person" at the office
More air in the room
Sure! Atmosphere, practical org., good sessions Open space track
Graphical recording as in the full XP Days
Per's requirement model More about coaching and change management No. Oh yes: big thank you to the organizers!!
Product Owner Game
Vietnamese
Eduscrum
Yes! The variety, the people, the venue Bigger? Eduscrum Craftsmanship, personal excellence
Definitely! Good interaction, nice crowd Add open spaces New Eduscrum session A track focused on fun! I love the organization, very well done :-)
Maybe Interaction in sessions
Talking to other people
? Already perfect Graphical presentations Agile Change Management Great organization - well done!
Maybe Nice people & atmosphere Asking presenters to focus more on their experience with XP The product owner game will receive more attention from me, as will Eduscrum Open space day Please improve the travel description - riding the bus is difficult for foreigners - taxi highly recommended! Line 682 is going past Elewijt also
Yes! Meeting people: old friends, new people
Good sessions
Eduscrum :-)
Scaled agile company visits/knowledge sharing with TomTom
