Wednesday 29 from 19:00 until 20:00

(This is a session with limited capacity. Registration necessary via the link in the Participant Roadbook)

Attending a conference can have many advantages. Traditionally, participants gain a lot of new ideas from the talks and benefit from the experience of the speakers. However, we believe that the greatest treasure of a conference, the collective knowledge of all participants, is not yet fully exploited. So, join us for an immersive evening session, designed to maximize collaboration and connection among participants. Utilizing Liberating Structures, we'll delve into interactive activities aimed at harnessing the collective knowledge of the group to work on challenges and questions about Domain-Driven Design contributed by the participants.

You will take away:

  • Expanded network and new connections forged through interactive engagement.
  • Collaborative problem-solving experience, tackling challenges alongside fellow attendees.
  • Hands-on experience with interactive immersion in Liberating Structures.

Don't miss this chance to actively participate, learn, and connect in a unique and enriching environment.

If the weather permits, we will even go outside to experience how a change of environment helps in freeing our minds and gives us more space to open our brains! In case of any disability, we will provide help to make sure everybody can participate!


Seriously-playful curiosity :)
