Last week, 30-plus attendees of the 24th Hands-on Agile meetup ran a virtual Barcamp experiment w/ MIT’s Unhangout, an open-source platform for organizing attendee-driven virtual open space events.
Read on and learn whether Unhangout is a suitable solution to remote collaboration challenges.
TL; DR: Exploring Virtual Open Space Technolgy — A Live Virtual Meetup on June 25, 2020
How do we run a virtual open space event or BarCamp with a large number of participants? Principally, we could use break-out rooms for organizing the sessions. The question is, though, how do we ensure that the law-of-two-feet still applies? By making everyone a co-host? Probably not the best idea in some situations.
Let us hence check out an MIT application that claims to provide precisely the solution we are looking for — Unhangout.
Save the Date: Agile Camp Berlin 2020
The Agile Camp Berlin 2020 will happen from April 17-18, 2020, at the Evangelische Schule Berlin Zentrum right in the center of Berlin.
Join the Agile Camp Berlin and experience two energizing days with 200 agile peers focusing on community, sharing, and learning. We will practice games and exercises—from Liberating Structures to paper snowflakes and airplanes to building castles with 50 other folks you have never met in your life. We will share tips & tricks, lessons learned, war stories from the agile trenches, and enjoy the company of 200 like-minded people at a perfect venue for our purpose: the Evangelische Schule Berlin Zentrum, one of twelve organizations that Frédéric Laloux describes in his book “Reinventing Organizations.”
Like in 2019, the conference language is English.
