Have you heard about the meetup we run once a month that we call ANDchat? We’ve had 10 this year, and the topics have ranged from how to build a digital professional company from scratch with our very own CEO Paramjit, to the rise of the Neobank with Alessandro Hatami, founder of the Pacemakers. Other topics have ranged from UX/Analytics to using Kafka for payments at scale. ANDchat recently hit a big milestone a few weeks ago as we now have more than 1000 in the ANDchat community. You can read about our past meetups on our meetup group here, and stay tuned for our next meetup which will be in late January. Our main ANDchat man and host Nick is on the case to get a great speaker for the event, so keep your eyes peeled for more info!
Our last one was just a few weeks ago, where our resident Agile guru Stuart Munton ran a game of Product Owner Multi-team frenzy, which, as you can imagine with the word “frenzy”, became slightly chaotic. You can check out the Facebook Live video here to see what I mean! It was a game created by Stuart to highlight how if Product Managers share the vision for a product with Product Owners, then the team can achieve a much higher output. The early rounds showed the PM not showing the entire vision, so teams got limited points. It was a great night, and a big shout out to our friends at Makers Academy for hosting it in their great space on Commercial Street. And of course thanks to the ANDchat team for pulling it all together!
While we’re still waiting for new year’s events to be confirmed, why not join our community on meetup.com which you can find here, so you’ll be the first the know when the next one is!Read More From This Author
