From Sketching to Visual Thinking: How to reason out a complex problem with the help of visuals

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!

Alberto Brandolini: The Gordian Knot at muCon London 2019, Skills Matter

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! 🙂

Avanscoperta Retreat #2 – Open Space

Once you pop, you cannot stop… And so that’s how we ended up organising Avanscoperta’s second Retreat in Bologna in January 2019!
