Okay, so over at the WSAF’s regular coffee meet-up we (again) blundered into the “What the hell do we do again, and doesn’t everyone love us?” topic. Rather than have a good short chat about it over coffee, some bright spark suggested we have a slightly longer great conversation about it with alcohol.
I posted notice of this impending unconference both on the WSAF’s linkedIn group – which you’re all most welcome to join (here) and on our meet-up group (here).
The date and time of the unconference is TBC, but it will almost certainly be on a Friday, very probably starting at 3pm, and go until 5-6pm-ish. The venue will be the offices of Middleware New Zealand. Date – likely to be one of the following (we’ll confirm soon): Sept 1st, 8th or 15th.
To start framing up the conversation I put this together (see diagram below).
Goal of the unconference
Apart from the usual highly desireable secondary benefits (i.e. drinking responsibly with like minded peers) the goal is to start identifying some specific things we can do to start actively transforming architecture so that we can keep doing rewarding work, and our stakeholders get consistent value of our involvement.
Date confirmed – 15th Sept 2017 – see https://www.meetup.com/Wellington-Solution-Architecture-Forum/events/242943803/
