Comference

Three Tuesday sessions to learn from

Besides our main Comference, this summer we're doing something special: We sit down with a group of people to talk about open source, cultural change and product owners. These conversations are streamed live, and attendees have the possibility to ask questions. After the interactive live event, the panel will sit down to record a short podcast to summarize the most important lessons from the live event.

June 29, July 27 and August 24, 2021

June 29, 7:30PM CET: Open Source in your company

It has been a long-running discussion: Companies should put more effort into (facilitating) contributing to Open Source projects. Companies often earn quite a bit of their money by using Open Source, but quite regularly do not contribute back to those projects. In this session, our guests will talk about the how and why of contributing to open source as a company.

The guests

  • Host: Jaap van Otterdijk (Ingewikkeld)
  • Sebastian Bergmann (PHPUnit, ThePHP.cc)
  • Stefan Koopmanschap (Ingewikkeld)
  • Erik Baars (ProActive)

July 27, 7:30PM CET: Facilitating company cultural change

Not every company has a culture that fits with how management or developers want their company to be. Changing a company culture is not an easy task, but it is possible. Join this session to learn about how to figure out where you want your company culture to go, how to introduce the company culture that you want and how to facilitate the change.

August 24, 7:30PM CET: The role of the Product Owner
in a development team

Product Owners are an important part of the development process, yet often developers see the Product Owner as their enemy. In this session we'll discuss the role of the product owner and look at the relation between product owners and developers.
