SCRUM workshops with Nearshoring Solutions part 2
SCRUM workshops with Nearshoring Solutions part 2

SCRUM workshops for English Camp volunteers turned to be amazing mainly because of the great trainer – Łukasza Gałąskę from Nearshoring Solutions who introduced to us the SCRUM method.

Last Saturday, on 25th of May for the second time we met and continued the workshop started a few weeks before. Discussed were all aspects of the Agile approach in project management. Through interesting activities, the group of 14 volunteers learned how the self-organizing team works and what benefits it has, why it is important to have retrospective or daily scrum meetings. The trainer managed to do couple of interesting exercises, which showed us how SCRUM works and what benefits it has.

We would like to thank Łukasz for the great time spent with us and exciting workshop!

English Summer Camp 2014 – launching!
English Summer Camp 2014 – launching!

Did you know that we are going to have already 11th edition of English Summer Camp (ESC)? On Saturday, May 17, 2014 with Planning workshops we started working on it!

The group of almost 40 volunteers met and spent the whole day on planning the upcoming Camp.

The first half of the day, Piotr Wojtera and Tomasz Szymborski, project managers from Nordea introduced and presented the Agile method and the basics of project management. After the lunch break we divided into groups and started discussing the plans & ideas for the next sprints.

It was a great day, resulted in many new ideas so that next English Camp will be at least equally wonderful to the previous editions and maybe even better 🙂

Big thank you goes to Piotr and Tomek for this session!
