Not only telling, but real involvement is the objective of my personal Meetup group in Munich. Changing organizations can be seen from a business perspective, but also from a personal point of view.

Sure, there are few new publications, which will make it into our lists in the future. Though, this will not change the importance of the already listed books. It is worthwhile sharing these lists. This is the compendium of my essential reads: Daniel…
Yesterday evening I was conducting a 90 minutes agile training. It has been the first for a while now. It has been a practice oriented training, and it has been very comprehensive and demanding, but I have learned a lot. That’s why I want to tell a bit about my experience.
