Francesco Strazzullo interviews Woody Zuill
We love having our experts talk to each other and discuss topics they’re the best experts of.
This is why we asked Francesco Strazzullo, author of the book Frameworkless Frontend Development, to interview the Godfather of Mob Programming, Mr. Woody Zuill.
What follows is an interesting conversation among two brilliant minds on the impact Mob Programming has had in their careers, the way this is used in their training courses, and how a more collaborative approach can help you write better code… all together!

An interview with Teri Frith
Did you know that a lot of the things we now know about “how the brain actually learns” have only emerged in the last 15 years or so?
The neuroscience principles behind learning are reflected in a lots of good approaches of brain-friendly teaching available today.
One of them is the “Training from the BACK of the room” training. A mind-blowing technique aimed at trainers, teachers, and anyone who has to “pass knowledge to others”.
When we had to organise our first-ever company Retreat, back in January 2018, the good old Dan North recommended we got in touch with Teri Frith, a certified “Training from the BACK of the room” trainer. So our Retreat was a 2-day “Training from the BACK of the room” training for our trainers and experts led by Teri.
Now you have a chance to read our interview with Teri and find out how to make your training activities more “brain-friendly”. Our community really liked it… your turn now!

An Interview with Eva-Lotta Lamm
Our motto #WeAreLearners means we evolve and learn new stuff every day. This is why this year we’ll be hosting a workshop on something a little different but that’s absolutely crucial for anyone involved in the so-called world of knowledge work: Sketching and Visual Thinking.
Courtesy of our trainer Eva-Lotta Lamm, you’re about to discover that you can indeed learn how to apply some basic principles for creating clear and legible sketches, spatial structures and visual hierarchy… something that’s really useful to anyone of us when it comes to explaining things and think through complex problems.
Curious? Read on then!

muCon: The Conference on Microservices, DDD & Software Architecture
Once upon a time there were two of the most successful conferences organised by Skills Matter. They were called DDD eXchange and muCon.
These two events have now merged into a bigger and better one: muCon – The Conference on Microservices, DDD & Software Architecture, a 3-day conference which aims at serving both the Domain-Driven Design and Microservices communities.
Both communities are alive and well all over the world, as the very varied and international crowd at the BDC in London could testify! 🙂
