Event description
This workshop is hosted by Aminata Sidibe, Principal Consultant at innoQ and Michael Plöd, Fellow at innoQ.

About this event

On November 15th, 2021 one day before our conference, we offer several amazing full-day workshops. We will provide lunch and plenty of coffee to fuel you through the day.

Pick the workshop you’re interested in and buy your ticket – be quick as there are very limited seats for each workshop (max. 20 per workshop to ensure the best possible learning experience). As the workshops are run in parallel you can only attend one of them, and once purchased you cannot change your workshop.

You should, of course, also join us at the conference the day after these workshops, but tickets are completely separate. Conference tickets do NOT give you access to workshops, nor do workshop tickets give you access to the conference.

About the workshop

Anyone who wants to develop good and sustainable software products should not start by evaluating technologies or frameworks. The first step should be developing and establishing an architecture that enables autonomous decisions and aligns the architecture to your product-led organization.

In this full-day workshop, we will first briefly introduce the basic ideas, concepts, and ideas behind product-led organizations and then drill down into two major topics: architecture and teams.

In the architectural part, we will show you how to identify good, domain-driven boundaries using a Bounded Context concept (from Domain-driven Design). This process is performed in a collaborative way using a workshop method called EventStorming. A Bounded Context aims at being a boundary for autonomous decisions and should be targeted towards a specific purpose.

This leads us to the second major part: teams. Teams in a product-led organization should be able to work as autonomously as possible so that they can run through quick build-measure-learn cycles. By aligning teams with Bounded Contexts, we will be able to achieve this. The workshop will pick up from that idea and show how you can visualize the relationships of your teams using two techniques: Context Maps from Domain-driven Design and Team Topologies from Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais.

This workshop is about three goals:

  1. Understanding why an alignment of architecture and teams is an enabler for product-led organizations
  2. Identifying good boundaries using EventStorming and Bounded Contexts
  3. Visualizing the relationships between teams and Bounded Contexts with Context Maps and Team Topologies

After the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Have an overview of the main concepts of DDD
  • Close the communication gaps between company, development and other project members
  • Define a common language for better communication between all product members
  • Carry out event storming workshops for your products to explore all the processes you have
  • Understand how things like a business model canvas and architecture fit together
  • Being able to cut good modules in software architectures with the help of Bounded Contexts
  • Being able to visualize the alignment between architecture and organization with the help of context maps and Team Topologies

Who should attend

The workshop is designed for anyone (e.g., Product Owners, Project managers, Tech Leads, Startup CEOs) who wish to understand.

Primary audience: Product Managers, Technical Program Managers, Startup CEOs

Secondary audience: Software Development Managers / Engineers, UX/UI designers and others involved in the product launch.
