It is said that anyone ever involved in setting up a process of managing software development had an idea of coming up with his own custom tool and workflow. Specifically in web software development.
We’ve all been there. We’ve gone through all existing tools and, this way or another, found our best shot. Heard of kanban? It’s as easy as 1–2–3 to tear it into pieces, take what fits, and call yourself agile. Daily inertia inside a busy software
house hive has proved it all right.
One of Monterail clients is Stefan Wolpers. On top of other dozen exciting things, Stefan organizes StartUp Camp Berlin. We have been lucky enough to be invited by him to the event. So Bartosz and I spent the last weekend in a vibrant atmosphere of Berlin-Kreuzberg at Startup Camp Berlin 2012. Vibrant has actually kept on being the main theme throughout the whole event.
First of all, Berlin is a 3 hour drive from Wrocław. A very pleasant one in mid-March. The proximity is not a surprising fact while lazily scrolling through the map. Not until one actually does hop into the car and after a while finds herself amazed by the atmosphere of the city and the event itself.
