“Agile practices don’t come from nothing. The reason they work is because there are other actions which we do every day which resemble them, and they work as well. During the speech I’ll give you some stories from my life and show how they map to agile practices. I’ll show you how observing and learning from great ideas from other fields than software can help in becoming a better developer. I’ll touch the subject of software craftsmanship and why it makes a difference.

Paweł Lipiński is a programmer, architect, team coach. For the last
couple of years he worked as a software and system architect, mainly
with enterprise projects. Currently he works at Pragmatists (being
it’s owner by the way) – a company based in Poland, Warsaw – dealing
with services for development teams (coaching, training, leading of teams), helping with ‘death march’ projects and creation of software using agile methods. He is a Certified Scrum Practitioner and possesses countless technical certificates mainly from Java and JEE land.”

“The talk presents the reality behind a new way of working: working remotely from home. It consists of several observations I have made (together with friends) through over 5 years of delivering software this way.

When I say I work from home, people’s reactions vary from admiration (“I could never force myself to get something done, sitting at home”) through commiseration (“You must miss people and feel ‘at work’ all the time”) to envy (“Oh, you can sleep in then, and do your job in pyjamas”). However, none of these are exactly true.

First, I will describe reasons for working remotely as a programmer. Next I will present a couple of useful habits of the remote worker, and then focus on working effectively in a distributed team.

Working from the home office not only saves commuting time, but can also be a unique opportunity to join an ambitious project you would never have been able to participating otherwise. Finding and picking a remote job opportunity might be a bit tricky, though, so I am going to cover this subject as well.

No one is going to organize your day for you, so what you will need “to survive” are Good Habits of the Remote Programmer(™) which will successfully stop you from burning the midnight oil every night.

Finally, there is a huge difference between just being a remote worker and being a member of a distributed team. I will present some ideas for agile teams working on a distributed basis, accompanied with a bunch of helpful software tools.

Hopefully I will help make your (current or future) home office a comfortable place and prove that this can be a really enjoyable and efficient way of developing software.

Paweł Wrzeszcz is a co-founder of SoftwareMill, where he works (remotely) as a ScrumMaster. Before starting his own business he worked for several companies including JBoss, a distributed start-up, and a large financial enterprise.

In his job he strives to switch freely between focusing on business goals and system users’ needs, and the lines of the (thoroughly tested!) application code. With over 5 years experience in Java EE / JBoss, he also provides consulting and training services.”

“Being agile is not a piece of cake. Being agile when you’re the ‘remote site’ is even harder. The presentation will cover our (Pragmatists) experiences in a project where we acted as a nearshore team: what issues we had, how we coped with problems we faced, how was the cooperation developing.

Speaker Bio: Paweł is a software architect and a consultant of enterprise software. Since 1999 he has been working in the design, development, and auditing of projects in a multitude of fields like banking, insurance, telecommunication, and media. He is an agile coach and a strong believer in the value of quality in software. Paweł is an owner of Pragmatists, a Warsaw-based company focused on creating high quality software using agile methods.”
