Talk Slides: Teaching Agile Methods with Industry Partners

I’m at ECSEE 2014, the European Conference on Software Engineering Education, and I just held a talk on how we teach agile methods at Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg. Key to our projects is the involvement of industry partners, who provide high-level project requirements to the different student teams. Here are the slides to my talk on The Educational Software Engineering Tripod: Students, Teachers, and Industry as a PDF and later on Slideshare below.

Open Source Career 2014 Talk Slides, Photos, and Video

The talk “The Open Source Software Developer Career and its Benefits”, which I gave at the 2014 Entwicklertag in Karlsruhe earlier this year, is now fully documented. You can take a look at the original paper, talk slides, event photos, and finally (woohoo!) a quality video recording courtesy of Andrena, the organizers of the Entwicklertag. For simplicity’s sake, below please find an embedded Youtube video (local copy).

Talk Slides: The Open Source Software Developer Career and Its Benefits

Today I held the new version of my “open source software developer career” talk for the first time, at the Karlruhe Entwicklertag. These are the slides and this is the underlying paper.

The Entwicklertag collects feedback from the audience. One of the listeners put down “1+” on the feedback sheet, grading this professor with an A+. Looks like I passed the exam!

The Business of Open Models

I’m at beautiful Schloss Dagstuhl once again this week, for a seminar on “Open Models as a Foundation of Future Enterprise Systems”. I was asked to spin some thoughts on what the Open Models Initiative could learn from open source. The result is a short but sweet presentation on “the business of open models”. My maybe obvious statement is that for open models to be sustainable, they’ll need a business model. My suggestion is to create developer foundations like Apache or Eclipse for this. The slides are available as a PDF and through Slideshare, see below:
